Degree Requirements for MBA-RD students starting Fall 2017

MBA/RD students will complete 40 to 45 credit hours in the Brennan School of Business and 20 hours in the College of Health Sciences.  Business courses are offered on week-day evenings so that Health Science courses and on-site program hours can be completed during the daytime.

Students who have taken undergraduate business courses may be eligible to have up to five of the MBA Foundation courses waived, depending on their undergraduate coursework and academic performance in selected business courses.  In addition to course waivers, students who have successfully completed relevant coursework at another accredited graduate program may request to have two courses (maximum of six credits) transferred and applied toward MBA degree requirements.
