All students must fulfill all core requirements. All electives are to be completed at the graduate level. Up to 10% of elective coursework may be taken outside of the School of Management at the University at Buffalo (full-time students only).

The credit hour requirements of MBA and MS programs cover only mandatory and regular class time (e.g., a 2-credit course delivered over 7 weeks requires 2 two-hour class meetings each week for 7 weeks). Instructors may offer course-related activities during non-class times, such as review sessions, exams, competitions, and presentations by executives. These extra activities, however, should not incorporate any new course content. The attendance at the activity should be fully voluntary and should not be a requirement of the related course. Instructors are not expected to give extra course credits for the purpose of encouraging students to attend the activity. Instructors also have the responsibility to ensure that the information and content of the activity that are beyond the requirements of the related course are not tested in exams for the course. To facilitate student attendance, the scheduling of these activities should be coordinated with the non-class program time that is accessible to all students.

The School of Management utilizes the University Course Evaluation System. Towards the end of each semester a reminder will be sent out to you via your active email, preferably the buffalo.edu account. The evaluation window is usually a month and all School of Management students are expected to complete course evaluations during this time. Help your department and the school by participating in this important exercise. It will only take ten minutes of your time to give us feedback on the courses you have taken during the semester. These evaluations are completely anonymous and your instructors will only see aggregate results after all grades have been submitted. This is another important way of participating in the decision-making process for the school, and all graduate students are expected to do so.
5/8/17
Exams to be held outside the class should be announced (e.g., in the course outline) within the first or second week of classes. Students can expect core course exams to be scheduled outside of regular class time to permit block scheduling of exams.

When a student registers, it is specifically understood that he or she will pay in full all charges assumed at registration. Simply failing to attend class does not change the payment due or entitle the student to a refund. To cancel the liability for registration, a student must officially resign by published dates. If a student withdraws from the program, he or she is still responsible for resigning from registered courses.

The MBA program is a full-time program. To complete the 60-hour program in two years, the normal course load is 15 hours per semester. A day student must successfully complete at least 9 hours of new coursework per semester to remain in good standing. A student making application for financial aid (TAP, loans, etc.) should contact the Financial Aid Office. “Full time” is interpreted to mean 12 hours of credit-bearing registration per semester for financial aid and immigration requirements. Full-time MBA students may register for up to 19 hours per regular semester. Permission must be requested in writing, to your advisor, in the Graduate Programs Office (203 Alfiero) to register for more than 19 hours and will only be granted under exceptional circumstances.
