The MSBA is an innovative accelerated 13-month program that creates exceptional career advantages by combining our proven curriculum with a potential opportunity for a paid internship.

  • Paid internship opportunities are determined on a competitive basis and last approximately 11 months for those who qualify. They provide exceptional work experience and offer real-world business experience, networking, and valuable resume credentials with the potential for continued employment

  • The 30-credit-hour program in a team-based format creates a high-quality, diverse learning environment
  • The tuition is $30,000 and is the same, regardless of residency
  • Experienced and distinguished faculty includes teacher/scholars with extensive analytical expertise
  • Lifetime career services access at Ulmer Career Management Center
  • Industry partners provide feedback on curricula ensuring graduates have marketable skills that are in high demand
