Your MBA on Your Terms
An undergraduate degree in business is not required to enter our MBA program. The curriculum has foundation courses built in, so students without a business background can build their core knowledge while pursuing an advanced degree. However, for students who have an undergraduate degree in business, our MBA builds on that knowledge base with advanced theory, a focus on critical thinking, and real-world problem-solving.
BUILD YOUR IN-DEPTH COMPETENCY
UM-Flint’s MBA program allows you to develop more in-depth competencies through concentrations in high-demand business disciplines including:
|Accounting*||Computer Information Systems*|
|Finance#||General MBA* # **|
|Health Care Management*||International Business#|
|Marketing & Innovation Management#||Organizational Leadership**|
|Supply Chain & Operations Management#|
*100% online option
**Weekend Net+ format
#Combination of online, Net+, and traditional evening
The general MBA and CIS concentrations can also be completed entirely in the traditional evening classroom as well.
This structure blends online education with two weekend (Friday & Saturday) on-campus sessions per semester. Students have the flexibility desired in a graduate program while still being engaged in a traditional classroom setting. The majority of course work is done online while integrating two campus sessions per semester. This gives students networking opportunities not found in most online programs.
These very interactive classroom experiences include professor lectures, group discussion/debates, in-class negotiations, group presentations, simulations, guest speakers, and much more. Additional advantages include:
- Opportunities to collaborate with other graduate students while on-campus
- Campus residency sessions that supplement online coursework and allow for face-to-face interactions
- This format makes it convenient for students from a wide geographic area to pursue the MBA
- Campus sessions planned out two years in advance to allow scheduling ease
We now offer our MBA 100% online. Read more here.
Traditional evening courses, on-campus, Monday – Thursday. Students meet one night a week during the fall and winter terms, and two nights during spring and summer terms (20 to 32 months).
MBA classes center around team-based project work. This collaborative, interactive approach to learning draws directly from today’s most successful business practices in innovation, implementation, risk management, decision-making, and more.
