The College of Business

College of Business Graduate Office

Earn a degree that matches your ambition. Our graduate business programs help you get where you want to go.

The College of Business Graduate Office currently offers three graduate program options:

  • Master of Business Administration

Tennessee's Tech traditional MBA program consists of 10, three (3) credit hour courses, and can be completed on campus or one hundred percent online, with both options yielding the same degree at completion. The program boasts a prestigious AACSB accreditation, which is the highest accreditation that a business program can achieve, worldwide. 

The program offers a General Management degree, as well as specializations in Human Resources Management, Management of Information Systems, and International Business. Additional electives are available in accounting, finance, and marketing. At present, TTU is eligible to offer MBA degrees online to 36 states, as well as the District of Columbia.

  • Hybrid, Industry-Immersed MBA for working professionals

The hybrid, industry-immersed MBA option was designed specifically with working professionals in mind. The goal of the program is to provide students with fundamental graduate level business education that will supplement their current acumen and allow them to become more effective industry leaders.

Participants in the hybrid MBA program will move through the curriculum as a member of a team of professionals who all work within a common industry. This “industry immersion,” coupled with a team-like atmosphere, allows for industry networking, career opportunities, and collaboration on projects over the course of the entire MBA program.

In just five semesters, the team will complete seven foundational business courses and three elective courses with industry applications. Students will be guided through the program in a lock-step fashion, completing the entire MBA in just a year and a half.   While the majority of the course content will be delivered online, the program will be supplemented by a series of weekend meetings, which will be held in Nashville and will represent the hybrid component for the program. This hybrid educational option allows for the interaction between faculty members and students, the possibility of seminar sessions, industry keynote speakers, and in-person review and application of concepts.

  • Master of Accountancy (MAcc) for aspiring CPAs.

The first and only program of its kind in the state, the MAcc program is designed to allow students to simultaneously earn a master's degree in accounting and sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam with a mix of online and on-campus learning opportunities. The goal of the program is to prepare students for successful careers in accounting, with an emphasis on professional certification, technical expertise, communication skills, technological competence, research and problem solving.

Program participants will have the option to select either a one-year track, or a two-year track to completion of the 30-credit hour MAcc degree. Full-time students can take advantage of completing the program in one year, while working professionals have the option to spread the curriculum out over two years.


Both Tennessee Tech's College of Business, and its Accounting program, boast the prestigious AACSB accreditation, the highest accreditation that a business school can achieve, world-wide.
