THE PROGRAM.Auburn University's MBA program is designed to prepare students for positions of leadership in public and private enterprise. The program consists of 36 to 42 semester hours of course work. At Auburn, the focus is on the core analytical and communications skills that better prepare students for the uncertain future. The program incorporates a mix of theory, practical applications and supplements, with a strong focus on team and group activities. While the program keeps abreast of the latest trends, it is not trendy. The curriculum has staying power; it reflects the broad, fundamental knowledge upon which students can build a successful career, while allowing students to specialize and develop further expertise in a particular area of concentration. MBA students take eight core courses in the program and four electives. Students may choose their electives to earn a concentration in a variety of functional areas, including finance, health care, marketing, operations management, management information systems, economics, management of technology, agribusiness, and natural resource management. A team strategy case analysis and presentation is the capstone requirement for the degree. Classes typically have 30 students enrolled. Most students complete the program in 15 months of full-time work. Students are required to have completed undergraduate courses in calculus and statistics prior to entering the program. In addition, students must have a strong background in fundamental business education, which can be accomplished through successful completion of course work in the following areas: accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing. In lieu of completing undergraduate courses in these fields, a competency examination may be administered through the MBA office.Since 1990, the Auburn MBA has been available off-campus through the video-based Graduate Outreach Program. Well over 800 students have completed their degrees through this flexible, innovative program.
