Program Description

The successful organization has a deliberate strategy for maximizing the value it creates. This strategy is effectively communicated to all participants in the business. The internal stakeholders understand their role in implementing the organization's vision and all processes are developed to achieve it. The Walker School of Business & Technology's MBA is developed with this organizational purpose in mind. Its aim is to teach students the business competencies needed to develop and implement value creating ideas and solutions while building the personal skills necessary to achieve their professional aspirations.

Learning Outcomes

This purpose is made clear in the following program learning outcomes:

  • Students can apply the core business competencies necessary to increase organizational value.

To achieve these outcomes, the Walker School MBA focuses on the role each business process plays in creating value and the Business Competencies necessary for students to achieve organizational objectives.

Advancement to Candidacy

Students are admitted to their graduate program upon completion of all admission requirements. Students are advanced to candidacy status after successfully completing 12 credit hours of graduate credit, with grades of B- or better. In the MBA program and other specialized programs, courses required as prerequisites to the program do not count toward the 12 credit hours required for advancement.
