Required Common Courses
The general program consists of seven 3-hour common courses (21 hours) and 9 hours of electives. It is intended that the full-time student can complete the 30-hour program in one calendar year. With permission of the Director of MBA Studies and the appropriate academic department chair, a student with 18 hours in the appropriate academic area may omit the common course from that area and substitute another approved course. This will allow accounting track students to meet the 12-hour AACSB track requirement as well as allow other track students to further concentrate their courses of study.
Each common course in this group will be required of all MBA candidates. As many as 9 semester hours may be transferred from other AACSB accredited schools. Credit will not be allowed for courses taken more than five years prior to application to Tennessee Tech. Enrollment in required common courses requires the permission of the MBA director. All core courses should be completed prior to any 600-level work.
