MBA Program Description
The University of Scranton MBA aims to provide a broad-based business education, offering courses across all functional areas. At the same time, students are afforded a degree of customization and choice of specialization. Students may concentrate in a focus area by completing four extending courses in that area. On-campus students can choose from the following available specializations: Accounting, Finance, International Business, Management Information Systems, Marketing, and Operations Management. Focus areas in the online program are currently limited to Healthcare Management and Operations Management. Students in both programs can choose to broaden their exposure by not focusing narrowly on a single functional area, choosing instead to maximize their flexibility in course selection (the General MBA option). Students who wish to focus on more than one functional area may do so but the same course may not be used to satisfy the requirements of more than one focus area—for example, an International course in finance may be used to fulfill the requirement for a focus in Finance but may not also be used to satisfy the International Business focus.
