MBA Studies

Current Students

We’re excited to have you here with us. Whether you are an on-campus or an online student, our goal is to make your experience here at TTU a successful one. Below you will find information about different activities that will take place during the year, and some instructions on how to access your TTU accounts. Please don’t hesitate to call (931-372-3600) or e-mail ( mbastudies@tntech.edu) our office if you have any questions as you get started.

Advisement

Each student must meet with the Director of MBA Studies to discuss their course selections for the following semester. This can be done via e-mail, phone or in-person meeting. You will receive an e-mail in your TTU inbox approximately one month prior to the end of the semester to schedule an advisement time.

Registration

Once you have been advised, you will be given your alternate PIN for registration. Information concerning registration and fee payment deadlines can be found on the university calendar: www.tntech.edu/calendar

Note: State employees using a fee waiver or PC191/P-130 have delayed registration times.

Textbooks

Required textbooks can be located on the TTU bookstore website: tenn-tech.bncollege.com. For specific questions about textbooks, please contact the faculty member teaching the course.

iLearn

Online students attend class via the iLearn course delivery system. You will gain access to your online courses the same day that on-campus courses are scheduled to begin. To login to iLearn for the first time:

  • From the TTU homepage, click on Student Life
  • Select iLearn under the third column
  • Click on the link to change your initial password for the system (Note: your username is your campus email address without the @students.tntech.edu)

Shortly after your first semester begins you will gain access to the MBA Information board on iLearn. Please check the news feed of this course on a regular basis. You can set up notifications by clicking the down arrow next to your name in the upper right hand corner of the screen after you login to iLearn.

TTU e-mail vs. iLearn e-mail

You will have access to an @students.tntech.edu e-mail address (your TTU inbox) and a @elearn.tntech.edu e-mail address (an internal e-mail function of iLearn). Regularly check both your TTU and iLearn emails.

The University sends official communications to all TTU e-mail addresses. This address will receive notices about schedules, grade results, billing information, emergency alerts, important deadlines, a daily email newsletter, and all other official university information.

Graduation

In addition to satisfying all degree requirements, a candidate for a degree must file an Application for Graduation at the beginning of the semester in which the degree is expected to be conferred. The deadline for the filing of the application is the second Friday after classes begin. Visit the Graduate Studies website for more information on graduation proceedings.

Quality of Work

An MBA student is required to maintain a cumulative grade average of at least B (3.0) on all courses taken for degree purposes. Not more than six hours of credit below a B grade will be allowed. If a grade of C is assigned in an MBA degree-related course, the course must be repeated, and both the original grade and the grade for repeat will be counted in the cumulative average. An MBA course may be repeated only one (1) time and no more than two (2) MBA degree courses may be repeated. In addition, any student receiving a D or an F in an MBA degree course shall be dismissed from the program.

Additionally, a graduate student must achieve a grade of at least C on each course taken for non-degree purposes, that is, courses taken for background preparation, certification, or personal enrichment. Please visit the Registration and Enrollment Requirements section of the Graduate Catalog to read the policy in its entirety.

Students are expected to maintain high ethical standards during their stay at Tennessee Tech University. Plagiarism (the use of someone else’s media, words, data, ideas, or other works) will not be tolerated. Students who fail to cite sources (plagiarize) may receive an “F” or a “0” for the assignment, or an “F" for the course.

Formal grade appeal procedures have been enacted by Tennessee Tech University. If a student wishes to appeal a grade, the procedure for doing so may be found in the Student Handbook.
