Class sizes are small and the faculty are supportive, challenging and invested in student success. Smith’s newly redesigned MBA curriculum helps you develop sophisticated analytical skills and an “integrative” systems understanding of the way business functions like marketing, finance and operations interact. You’ll master data-driven decision making and be ready to assess complex problems and deliver innovative solutions in any field. The requirement for a Master of Business Administration is 54 credit hours. This program is completed in two years over the fall and spring semesters with an internship between years one and two.
