The two-year full-time curriculum at the Ourso College of Business consists of 52 semester hours of course work. The 37-hour required core curriculum courses are logically sequenced to achieve synergies across disciplines. They provide students, many of whom do not have business undergraduate degrees, with a solid business foundation that is enhanced by the student’s courses of specialization.

Fifteen hours of electives courses are completed to pursue an MBA specialization. The MBA program currently offers specializations in 10 areas including entrepreneurship, emerging markets, supply chain management, and a customized concentration option.
