The University at Buffalo MBA program combines the
depth of a strong management core curriculum with the
breadth of career concentrations.
The two-year, full-time curriculum blends required foundation-building courses with flexible, career-targeted electives. The two-year format offers an excellent timeframe to build extensive career networks both inside and outside of the school, gain further real-world experience, and engage in a comprehensive job search. The faculty are committed to continuously reviewing the curriculum to maintain the strong foundation while keeping abreast of industry changes.
Developed with input from corporate recruiters, alumni, faculty, staff and career experts, the MBA curriculum provides the skills that individuals and organizations need for our globally integrated world of business. Programmatic goals such as team skills, quantitative analysis and integrative analysis are integral to the core, and the design also allows students flexibility to take advantage of are rich selection of concentrations and the LeaderCORE™ program.
An additional 33 credits of electives selected from concentrations or individual development courses will complete the program.
If the first year is the strong base on which you can build your professional career, the second year is your chance to channel that knowledge into a targeted career direction. Your own interests and professional objectives come into play when you customize your program by choosing elective courses from our comprehensive offerings. The second year allows you to broaden your perspective on management or deepen it in specific areas. While some students choose not to specialize, you may select one or more concentrations.
Current students check with your advisor or consult the current handbook.
