UW Oshkosh MBA Professional Program removes foundation level coursework with approved curriculum change

The UW Oshkosh College of Business approved a curriculum change to the MBA Professional Program. This change removes foundation level coursework as a prerequisite for admission.

Under the original 33-credit curriculum, students with insufficient academic business coursework were required to take up to 15 additional credits of foundation level coursework. The new curriculum will remove foundation level courses as a prerequisite into the program while still offering a flexible format for students. A set of tools courses have been embedded in the program to prepare students for core MBA curriculum.

“The new curriculum is strategically designed, allowing students to earn a reputable degree while reducing barriers to entry. For some, this will also reduce time to completion,” explained Kristi Cutts, associate director of MBA admissions.

The new streamlined curriculum will continue to be offered online and onsite and will feature several new courses. One of the new courses is The Strategic Context of Organizations (BUS 791), which helps students understand how each functional area of an organization is interdependent and cross-functional. Students will also learn why thinking at the organizational level is essential to maximize organization performance and career enhancement. This course features a unique blend of instructors from a variety of disciplines within the College of Business.

Emphases will continue to be offered in Health Care Management, Human Resource Management, International Business, Marketing, Management Information Systems and Project Management.
