The MBA degree at UConn requires 57 credits of graduate level courses. Prior course work in business is not a prerequisite. We designed the curriculum for students with backgrounds in liberal arts, engineering, natural sciences and social sciences as well as business administration. While providing a thorough grounding in contemporary management, it blends and balances technical rigor, management theory, practical application, generalization and individualized areas of concentration. The overall objective of the UConn MBA Program is to educate students to make well-informed and responsible decisions.
Convenience and flexibility are fundamental features of UConn’s MBA Program curriculum structure allowing students to design individualized programs to suit their personal and professional needs. MBA courses are delivered in Hartford, Stamford and Waterbury all year long and are generally offered evenings, weekends and in a variety of blended formats.
Though the program is designed with part-time students in mind, accommodating the various obligations of working professionals, individuals may take more than one or two courses during a semester. Ultimately, UConn MBA students move through the program at a pace that is comfortable for them. It is also possible to take a semester or two off and remain matriculated by paying a small continuous registration fee. Some students finish the program in fewer than three years while others take five or more years to complete it.
A unique feature of UConn’s curriculum is the ability to develop more than one area of concentration. A minimum of two electives comprises an area of concentration; however, some concentrations will require more than two electives or require specific classes in that area of concentration.
