Although the Professional MBA is a broad, general degree, concentration may be acquired by taking electives in an area of specialty consistent with a student's professional interests, such as accounting, finance, marketing, and supply chain management. For example, students desiring a concentration in accounting leading to eligibility to take the uniform CPA examination can do so by selecting accounting courses for their graduate business electives.
Students are required to complete three residencies/internships. They will be provided with the sequence of their residencies during the freshman year to allow students to plan ahead for course availability and ensure that professional development courses are taken in the correct sequence. Students must complete two residencies/ internships prior to being admitted into the Professional MBA program and enrolling in "5000 level" course work.
Curriculum Update Policy
The SBI administration and faculty recognize their responsibility to:
- Upgrade the curriculum to assure that students acquire the most current and relevant education possible. The curriculum is reviewed periodically, and any changes will be communicated to the students through their academic advisors. The assurance of well-prepared graduates will always be the controlling concern.
- Produce graduates that are academically, ethically, and professionally prepared to accept the challenges of the current and future business profession. Consequently, the School of Business and Industry reserves the right to withhold the recommendation for graduation of any student who does not conform to these expectations.
