This is a 30-credit program (ten courses). Students begin with a required Core course in Ethics and three other required Foundation courses, and then advance into taking predefined concentration and/or elective courses. Students, with the help of their advisors, may choose their own electives or take electives from a predefined concentration. Program concentrations and electives are designed to enable students to more acutely define their expertise.
The program culminates in a Capstone course that stretches students to apply their accumulated knowledge to real-world corporate, non-profit or entrepreneurial challenges.
Students must earn a grade of “B” or better in both the Capstone and Ethics to successfully complete these courses. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 ("B") is also required of all students for good standing and to be eligible for graduation. See Course Schedule for more detailed course descriptions and options.
