That's how employers describe our graduates! Student-centered learning in degree programs that fully engage you in the classroom and the real world.
With courses offered in the evenings and online, earning your degree is convenient, and can be accomplished at your own pace as a part-time student, or as a full time student. The program requires 34 hours of graduate credit with an overall grade point average of 3.0 or better.
You will take courses in three areas:
Financial and Cost Analysis — You will learn how to make business decisions using cost, accounting, data and cost justification analysis.
Strategic Planning and Implementation — Through case studies, you will learn the basics of corporate strategy, how to align the strategies to your business unit, and how to successfully implement the strategies.
Enterprise Resource Planning — You will learn the strategic importance of various information technologies, and how to justify and successfully implement IT solutions.
Seminar: Operations Management — Current topics, including globalization and business ethics, are explored through guest speakers, current readings, and student research and presentations.
