Read the UNI Catalog description:

Graduate study in business at UNI is designed to qualify men and women for creative leadership in organizations. The Master of Business Administration is a broad-based, integrated program which emphasizes the functional areas of business in order to provide the graduate with a balance between theoretical knowledge and practical business operations. The M.B.A. curriculum is designed to meet the needs of working professionals with undergraduate backgrounds in the liberal arts, sciences, engineering, as well as those with degrees in business. The M.B.A. program is accredited by AACSB International, the primary accrediting organization for management education.

The plan of study prescribed for the degree is structured to develop graduates who will have acquired:

  1. knowledge of current business practice and management techniques necessary to be effective in managing and leading the day-to-day operations of the organization, as well as scanning the business environment and strategically planning for the future;
  2. critical thinking skills to address complex business issues, gather information, identify and evaluate a range of options, and make ethical, thoughtful choices among the alternatives;
  3. the ability to use appropriate quantitative and qualitative tools and concepts throughout the problem solving process showing an appreciation for the interrelationships among the various business functions;
  4. the ability to effectively participate as a team member, facilitate group processes, and manage team projects;
  5. professional written and oral communication skills necessary for effective management.

Admission to the Master of Business Administration program is dependent upon the quality of the applicant's undergraduate record, post-baccalaureate experience, the score on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and writing and reasoning skills demonstrated on the addendum to the application.

Only graduate courses (course numbers 5000 or above) will apply to a graduate degree, even if the undergraduate course number (4999 or less) is listed. No exceptions will be made.

This program is available on the non-thesis option only. Students who enter the program with the undergraduate requirements of a baccalaureate degree will normally require 31 semester hours to complete the program. Those students who enter the program with an undergraduate degree in an area other than business will be required to complete some pre-MBA courses in business or show that they have completed equivalent courses in previous academic work. A minimum of 12 hours of 200/6000-level course work is required. Candidates for the degree are also required to successfully complete and pass a business capstone experience at the end of their program of study. The result of this experience is reported in a paper and filed in the M.B.A. office.

Students interested in this program must submit a completed Application for Admission to Graduate Study and should refer to their MyUNIverse Student Center To-Do list or contact the College of Business Administration for any other application requirements.
