MS in Business

The Master of Science in Business is a customizable degree program built by combining a 12-hour business core with certificate programs from the College of Business and our partner degree programs. Students can combine certificate programs in unique ways to create a degree narrowly focused on business, or interdisciplinary with a business foundation.  

Degree Requirements

The MS in Business degree involves three components: Twelve hours of core business foundation courses offered by the College of Business (TCoB), a graduate certificate offered by TCoB, and the choice of an additional certificate offered by TCoB or an approved certificate offered by another program.  

Completion of the degree requires 30-36 credit hours, depending on the certificates chosen and eligibility for credit waivers. 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.
