Quality + Value
ECU’s College of Business has been AACSB accredited since 1967 and our MBA program consistently ranks as a Best Buy for online education. Less than 5% of the world’s business schools have earned an AACSB accreditation —considered the gold star in management education. This cost and quality combination makes our program a smart choice for a wide variety of students.
The ECU MBA program is designed for both business and non-business undergraduates. The degree is completely self-contained, requiring no prerequisite business experience or course work. Our students bring a variety of perspectives and experiences to class discussions and projects, which makes your learning even more diverse and rich.
We customize the program to fit YOU based on past academic experience and performance. That means no cohorts and no dictated pace. The ECU MBA is truly a program where you create a schedule that works with your life, alongside the support and guidance of a dedicated advisor. You can set your own pace throughout the program – taking between one to five courses each semester. You can even take a semester or more off if needed. Courses may be taken in any order, provided prerequisites are met.
The MBA degree program is open to students with baccalaureate degrees in any discipline from institutions accredited by a CHEA-recognized institutional accrediting agency who present evidence of their ability to pursue graduate study. The decision is based on a combination of factors, including, but not limited to, satisfying minimum GPA and entrance exam scores as noted below. The College of Business does not require letters of recommendation or a statement of purpose.
Online or On-Campus
You can pursue the MBA program on-campus, completely online, or as a combination of two delivery methods. Requirements and structure of the program are the same regardless of on-campus or online delivery. There is no residency requirement.
The program is a maximum of 18 courses, or 54 semester hours, and provides an engaging and flexible education in the theory and practice of business management – exposing you to a range of subjects, including economics, marketing, accounting, finance, strategy, operations management, information systems, and supply chain management. These courses are divided into three categories:
