Goodman School of Business
All MBA students are required to register for both the Fall (Sept-Dec) and Winter (Jan-Apr) terms, unless they have received approval from the Goodman School of Business for interruption of their graduate program or have completed their graduate degree requirements. Failure to register will be interpreted as withdrawal from the program.
Not sure what you need to take?
Please consult the Degree Requirements screen in your online profile at the Graduate Portal. This will show you which required courses you have already completed and which ones are remaining. If you have further questions, please let Bryan know in writing through the Questions and Answers section of the portal.
Do you wish to have a specialization noted on your MBA degree?
You will take a total of six electives in your MBA program. If you take five or more courses in the same field (ie. marketing or finance), the specialty field will appear on your degree. Otherwise, your degree will say MBA [without any specialty].
IMPORTANT NOTE - Students entering the MBA in 09/10 or later who want to specialize in marketing will be required to take five marketing electives including 5P61, 5P62 and 5P64.
Looking for other options?
Consider an independent study elective (MBAB 5P91, 5P92, 5P93) under the supervision of a faculty member. The student is responsible for finding an appropriate and willing supervisor. The project itself can take many forms as long as it contains about 120 hours of work. All project proposals must be approved by the faculty supervisor and the Associate Dean of Graduate Programs. Contact Bryan Butryn, Academic Advisor for more information.
In rare cases, it is also possible for graduate students to take a fourth year undergraduate courses as an elective. Check the undergraduate timetable for possibilities and contact Bryan with your preference. He will assess the feasibility of your request at that time.
Part Time Students:
Required courses are cycled into the evenings approximately every two years. If you would like assistance in preparing a program plan that helps you meet your goals, please contact Bryan for an appointment.
