MS in Business
The Master of Science in Business is a customizable degree program students build based on existing certificate programs within the College of Business and other colleges within the University of Missouri System. Students combine or "stack" certificate programs in unique ways to fulfill degree requirements, thus creating a degree that is either narrowly focused on business, or is interdisciplinary with a solid business foundation. This unique concept is known as "Stackable Certificates".
The basic framework for the degree involves three components: A required set of Core Business Foundations courses offered by the College of Business (TCoB), a graduate certificate offered by TCoB, and the choice of an additional certificate offered by TCoB, an approved certificate offered by another college at MU, or an approved certificate offered by another business school within the University of Missouri system.
The MS in Business requires 30 credit hours minimum. Depending on the certificates chosen, and the ability to waive credit hours, the maximum number of credit hours to complete the degree will vary. Twenty-one of the total 30 credit hours must originate from TCoB courses or courses jointly offered by TCOB and another college. Students will have the option to waive up to 6 credit hours of core courses under specific circumstances, including the completion of an undergraduate business degree.
