Professional MBA Curriculum Change

We are pleased to announce that the UW Oshkosh College of Business approved a curriculum change to the Professional MBA path. Expected implementation is fall of 2017.

The new curriculum will eliminate foundation level courses as a prerequisite into the program while still offering a flexible format for students. 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. Under the new 36-credit curriculum, a series of required tools courses have been embedded into the curriculum in order to prepare students for the core MBA courses.

The new streamlined curriculum will continue to be offered in online and onsite formats and will feature several new courses. The Strategic Context of Organizations (BUS 791), a required entry course into the program, will help students understand how each functional area of organizations contributes to planning, plan implementation, why all functional areas are interdependent and why thinking at the organizational level is essential to maximize organization performance and career enhancement. Select courses may be taken concurrently with BUS 791. Students will enroll in 4.5 elective credits by choosing from a variety of class offerings. The program will conclude with a Capstone Analysis of Organizations (BUS 799) course where students will demonstrate their mastery of the UW Oshkosh MBA Program learning goals and objectives. Emphases will continue to be offered in Health Care Management, Human Resource Management, International Business, Marketing, Management Information Systems and Project Management. We are currently working to update our website with the curriculum changes. In the meantime, the full curriculum can be viewed by clicking here.
