Filomena Durso, Associate Director, Master of Business Administration Program

The 36 credit MBA degree and 30 credit MSA degree can be combined to create a customized education plan totaling 54 credits. This program prepares individuals for senior financial and accounting positions where a breadth of management knowledge is combined with an in-depth understanding of accounting. The benefits of such a custom degree allow graduates to pursue a more specific career within their interest range. A diploma for each degree is issued by the University at the same time the degree requirements are completed.

Dual MBA/MSA Curriculum

Candidates must elect a concentration in the MBA and the MSA upon entrance to facilitate courses in the program path.
