Concentration Options

Customize your Master of Business Administration with one of our several concentration options. Our MBA concentration programs increase your marketability with focused content in traditional, emerging and interdisciplinary areas of study.

Concentration options include:

Curricular Practical Training (CPT)

CPT helps foster an experiential education model and allows students to acquire knowledge in a particular area of interest while gaining skills to apply that knowledge in a real world setting in the workplace. Students start Practical Training in their first semester and it is required that they are fully engaged in Practical Training before the end of the first two 8-week terms of their program.

A student's CPT internship or employment must relate to that student's program of study and may be paid or unpaid based on student preference.

Schedule:

  • All courses are offered in the evening and ASM scheduling accommodates working professionals. A full course load of two courses per 8 week term requires the student to be in the classroom twice a week.
  • Summer semester courses are offered in an executive hybrid format to allow students some flexibility in studying schedules.
  • The program follows a cohort model, with all students taking the core curriculum courses as a cohort at the beginning of the program, followed by concentration tracks during their remaining program of study.
