General Scheduling Information
MBA Program
 

 

Scheduling and Course Options


The Coles MBA program is extremely flexible. You can tailor your education to your own pace and interests. You can move through the program in 12 months by taking a full slate of classes each term, or in several years by taking just a class or two each semester. You can concentrate electives in one particular field of study, or dabble as your interests lead you.

As such, you control your MBA experience.

Core Courses:

All Coles MBA students take the following seven courses. The first six are the core courses, the seventh is our Capstone course. Two sections of each of these courses typically are offered each academic term. Students should take the core course in a particular discipline prior to taking electives in that area.

  • ACCT 8000: Accounting Insights for Managers
  • ECON 8010: Resource Allocation and Decision Analysis
  • FIN 8020: Business Finance
  • MGT 8040: Managing the Value Chain
  • MGT 8050: Managing and Leading Work Behavior
  • MKTG 8030: Strategic Marketing

               AND

  • MGT 8999: Strategic Management: An Integrative, Capstone Experience

Paired Core:
The core courses form the foundation of your MBA degree. To facilitate progress through them, we’ve set a schedule several semesters in advance.
The six courses are arranged into three pairs:

  • The Language of Business Analysis: ACCT 8000 and ECON 8010
  • The Value Proposition: MKTG 8030 and MGT 8040
  • Resource Management: FIN 8030 and MGT 8050

Each Fall and Spring terms, these pairs will be offered on the same night in the same classroom. The evenings on which they are offered will rotate each term.
By utilizing the paired core, our students can:

  • Come to campus just one night a week yet still make significant progress on their degree.
  • Create natural cohorts and teams that endure beyond a single class.
  • Plan their schedules well in advance. For example, someone might plan on coming to campus on Mondays for three straight terms, and will know that the entire core will be available.

Taking Courses Outside of the Coles College of Business MBA Program

All Coles College of Business MBA students are eligible to register for any non restricted KSU offered course. However, all KSU offered courses do not necessarily count as credit towards the MBA program. As stated in the Graduate Catalog, “A maximum of one business-relevant three-credit-hour course may be taken in a Kennesaw State University graduate program outside of the Coles College of Business with written permission from the director of the program and from the academic coordinator of the Coles College graduate programs.” In the event that one non MBA course has been transferred into the program, MBA students can still register for courses outside of the MBA program, including undergraduate courses. However, these extra courses will NOT count toward your MBA degree.
