The program requirements will differ based on whether you pursue one of the five concentration areas or choose the General MBA and utilize your remaining electives to customize your degree.

What is the difference between the General MBA and a concentration?

A concentration has a predetermined set of courses designed to help you succeed in that specific functional area. The General MBA allows you to select the elective courses that best suit your career goals; examples include interdisciplinary topics such as data analytics, public relations, web design, computer science, nursing administration, and more.
