2010-2012 Program Changes

The FSU College of Business MBA program has reorganized its course offerings, with full implementation beginning Fall 2010.

The program change effects only the “Essentials” requirements in the 2010-2012 Graduate catalog and replaces the ten one-credit “Essentials” courses with three three-credit “Essentials” courses designated by the BUAD discipline code. For students admitted into the Master of Business Administration program under the 2010-2012 FSU Graduate Catalog, the MBA Essentials consist of three courses carrying three credit hours each (9 hours) that can be waived if the applicant has taken equivalent courses as an undergraduate or has credit for similar courses in another graduate program. The second section, Required MBA Core, consists of 12 courses of three credit hours each (36 hours). The program has a number of prerequisites in the required core. The Required MBA Core courses have not been affected by the change.

Current MBA Students

In order to receive an MBA degree from Frostburg State University, you must meet the graduation requirements of the catalog year of your acceptance into the program. As a result of a major revision to the MBA program, it may be beneficial to a number of students to substitute the requirements listed in the new 2008-2010 Graduate catalog for those which appear in the catalog of your entry year. In order to substitute the new set of graduation requirements, you must apply in writing to the Director of Graduate Services and request a formal transfer to the new 2008-2010 Graduate catalog. Once this request is approved, it is irrevocable. If you choose not to transfer to the new catalog and have outstanding Essential requirements that must be met based on your current catalog requirements, you must request course substitutions for any outstanding Essential coursework that you have been required to take in order to meet the graduation requirements of your current catalog. You must submit your request in writing for course substitutions to the Office of Graduate Services. This request will be forwarded to your Program Coordinator for formal approval and you will be notified by mail of the decision.

Program Progression

Because all courses may not be offered at each site each semester, you will have to take the courses that are available.  Several of the courses have prerequisites as outlined in the Graduate Catalog. The two capstone courses, MGMT 680 and MGMT 690, must be taken in the last semester of your program of study. Students in their final semester may only take MGMT 510, BMIS 607, and ECON 511 with the capstone courses.  All other courses must be complete before entering into the final semester.
