Accredited by AACSB since 1976, the MBA program is open for application to all undergraduate majors. In addition to a robust business curriculum, the MBA program places a heavy emphasis on professional development and international travel. The program ensures that students are business savvy, internationally experienced, proven leaders, proficient communicators, ethical, and employable.

The MBA program is also ideal for students wanting to complete two master’s degrees simultaneously. With department and Graduate School approval, a double degree graduate student count up to 50% of the credit hours from one program of study on the other program. This reduces the time it takes to complete the second degree. In many cases, by taking advantage of MBA summer courses and enrolling in a few extra classes during the year, students can graduate from both degrees within a semester of their original graduation date. Students have enrolled in the MBA program in combination with programs in Higher Education, Engineering Physics, and others. The form to request admission to a second master’s program may be obtained from the Graduate School (graduate.appstate.edu/about-us/forms#program).

To fulfill the mission of the MBA program extensive resources are dedicated to ensuring the program is well rounded. In addition to a robust curriculum, the MBA program places a heavy emphasis on practical job preparation through practicums, internships, executive skills courses, and international travel. Students also receive one-on-one coaching from the Walker College of Business Graduate Career Services. The program ensures that students are business savvy, internationally experienced, proven leaders, proficient communicators, ethical, and employable.
