Earning your master of business administration degree gives you the freedom to customize the program to meet your career goals. Choose from a range of concentrations including business analytics, management information systems, supply chain management, as well as joint concentrations with other RIT colleges, such as engineering management and health systems administration.
The MBA program requires 48 semester credit hours and consists of 16 courses, 11 of which are devoted to core functional areas, and five are dedicated to concentration areas and electives. An MBA concentration is a sequence of three courses in one discipline, giving you in-depth knowledge in a chosen topic.
Students may choose from a variety of concentrations that best fit their career goals. Popular concentrations includes finance, marketing, and entrepreneurship. You may choose from a number of joint concentrations offered in partnership with RIT's other colleges. Students may also create a custom concentration using any graduate courses offered at RIT (subject to prerequisites and program director review and approval). A concentration is defined as three MBA electives in an area of specialization. (MBA concentrations do not appear on a student’s transcript.) Students must take one concentration.
Cooperative education, or co-op for short, is full-time, paid work experience in your field of study. And it sets RIT graduates apart from their competitors. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries. RIT co-op is designed for your success.
Cooperative education in the MBA program is optional. Academic credit is not granted, but formal recording of the co-op experience is made on the student's transcript. Students in good academic standing are eligible for co-op after completing the foundation course, and a substantial portion of their concentration courses. They also must attend a series of co-op and career services workshops. RIT does not guarantee co-op placements.
