Master of Business Administration
Our nationally accreditated MBA program has been advancing the careers of Charlotte, NC professionals since 1991.
The MBA curriculum consists of 36 credits which includes 12 three-credit courses. It is divided into two components: core courses (30 credits) and concentration courses (6 credits). Core courses cover the complete range of business disciplines and serves as the general management foundation for the program. Concentration courses provide added depth and relevance in specific areas of emphasis that connect to student career goals and professional interests.
The Data Analytics concentration will focus on developing the ability to
access, mine and extract data from information databases, enterprise data warehouses,
and other sources; to analyze, interpret, and extract meaning from raw data and
leverage applicable specialized data analytics software and other tools with a focus on
real world applications; and to translate, optimize, and present data in order to drive
optimal business decisions.
The General Management concentration provides students with the option of taking courses across different concentrations, providing a general management orientation. Students may choose two courses from any of the concentrations with the exception of BUS 672 (subject to the applicable prerequisites).
While a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution is required, it’s possible to join our program if you majored in a field other than business. All you need to do is satisfy these required undergraduate prerequisites:
- Principles of Financial Accounting
- Principles of Managerial Accounting
- Principles of Microeconomics
- Principles of Macroeconomics
- Principles of Management
- Principles of Marketing
- Principles of Finance

- Mathematics (College Algebra or Calculus)
Mastery of these required courses can be demonstrated with a final grade of “C” or better at another institution, or you can choose to take our BUS 500 course, which allows non-business majors to meet their undergraduate pre-requisites within one semester.
We use a rolling admission model, so applicants are reviewed and accepted throughout the year, with admission possible up until the beginning of each semester. Students may begin the MBA program during the fall, spring or summer semester.
