The Broad Full-time MBA curriculum encourages you to customize a plan of study that addresses your interests and broadens the scope of your MBA experience.

MBA Concentration Areas focus on a specialization and round out your course work with areas of particular interest to you that are highly relevant to your future career.

The electives component of the curriculum allows you to take 15 elective credits that complement your concentration. The program maps out suggested courses to assist students interested in pursuing opportunities in the following areas:

  • Consulting
  • Corporate accounting
  • Hospitality business
  • Information technology management
  • International business
  • Leadership change management
  • Strategic management

A minimum of 15 credits of elective courses must be taken beyond the MBA Core Curriculum and concentration requirements. You may take some electives offered by other colleges at MSU as long as they are graduate-level courses related to a future business career and have been approved by an MBA adviser.

As part of the university’s block tuition policy, Broad MBA students are able to complete course work beyond the 58 credits required of the MBA degree under a “one price” structure, which includes electives of interest from other MSU colleges.
