The University at Buffalo MBA program combines the
depth of a strong management core curriculum with the
breadth of career concentrations.
The full-time curriculum blends required foundation-building courses with flexible, career-targeted electives. The two-year format allows you to build extensive career networks both inside and outside of the school, gain further real-world experience and engage in a comprehensive job search. Our faculty continuously reviews the curriculum to maintain a strong foundation while keeping abreast of industry changes.
Developed with input from corporate recruiters, alumni, faculty, staff and career experts, our MBA curriculum provides the skills that individuals and organizations need for our globally integrated world of business. Team skills, quantitative analysis and integrative analysis are fundamental to the program, and the design also allows students flexibility to take advantage of our 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.
In your first year, you will develop a strong base on which you can build your professional career. Your second year is your chance to channel that knowledge into a targeted career direction. Your personal interests and professional objectives come into play when you customize your program by choosing elective courses from our comprehensive offerings, allowing 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.
