Listed below are the requirements for each concentration. Every M.B.A. student
begins with a general business concentration. In each fall and spring term, students
are given a designated time when the concentration selection can be changed.
required courses are not included in the concentrations lists of courses other than
the recommended second required accounting course, which is not included in the
total hours required for each concentration. A directed study course does not count
toward a concentration requirement. M.B.A. students complete one concentration.
Only Full-Time M.B.A. students with 36 credit hours of elective courses may be
able to complete a second concentration.
Concentrations and specializations do
not appear on diplomas; however, the concentration does appear on transcripts.
(Please note: While the Cox School encourages all students to select the concentration
of their choosing, it cannot ensure that all classes will be available in every
term to meet the concentration requirements.)
Note that, for the second accounting core requirement, a student may take ACCT
6201 Financial Accounting II or ACCT 6205 Managerial Accounting I. ACCT
6202 Financial Accounting II is a prerequisite for ACCT 6210 Financial Reporting
and ACCT 6211 Analysis I and Financial Statement Analysis, which are highly
recommended courses for students concentrating in finance, although these two
accounting courses do not count toward the finance concentration.
