Program Details

DEPOSIT & FEES

As a reminder, there is a $1,000 non-refundable enrollment deposit required. The enrollment deposit is not covered by the University tuition benefit program.

The deposit secures your seat in the class and confirms your intention to enroll in the program. It will show as a credit on your Bursar account and will be applied toward your $1,000 program fee in the first semester of study in the program. The program fee will be included in the invoice sent by the Bursar’s Office and covers orientation programming and student events.

Please note that all students, regardless of employer-sponsored tuition, are still responsible for the $1,000 program fee.

In addition to the program fee, students will incur a $100 UR student activity fee per term beginning in their second term (mandatory for all students).

CLASS SCHEDULE

Weekly evening classes are held Monday through Thursday from 5:40 p.m. - 9:00 p.m (with breaks throughout). Please see the Academic Calendar on the Registrar’s website for further details and updates.

CURRICULUM

The cohort begins each fall and spring—with students taking two courses per term and completing the program as quickly as 2 years with an average of 3.3 academic years.  Students take nine core courses in a structured sequence as directed by their Academic Advisor, Shawn Denman. Subsequently, each student selects 11 electives to complete their desired concentration(s), one of which must be a project course. You may matriculate into the program in any other term but will not follow the same course sequence as the cohort.

Core courses include:

  • Corporate Financial Accounting (ACC 401)
  • Information Systems for Management (CIS 401)
  • Capital Budgeting and Corporate Objectives (FIN 402)
  • Business Modeling (GBA 411)
  • Data Analytics (GBA 412)
  • Marketing Management (MKT 402)
  • Operations Management (OMG 402)
  • Managerial Economics (STR 401)
  • Organization and Strategy (STR 403)

Because each MBA student has varying career interests and goals, you may choose 11 elective courses from 10 different areas of specialization within the tracks of Finance, Marketing and/or Consulting. Additionally, there are minors available to obtain further knowledge in Accounting, Analytics, Entrepreneurship, Health Sciences Management, Global Business, and Leadership.
