Muma College of Business – University of South Florida - Online MBA
Muma College of Business Online MBA Program Structure
The ultra-flexible, Online MBA program is built for students that wish to earn an MBA on their own preferred time. Students can complete their degree in as little as four semesters (if foundation courses are waived), or take courses on a part-time schedule, finishing in as much as five years.
The full program is comprised of 16 credits of business foundation courses, 17 credits of core courses, and 15 credits of elective courses. A three-credit practicum option is also available.
The program starts with a mandatory three-day residency held at the USF Muma College of Business campus, allowing students to interact face-to-face with professors and fellow classmates.
Entrants that have not earned an undergraduate business degree within the past seven years must take business foundation courses on the following three topics: Business Decision Making; Business Measurement; and Market Orientation. For those that enrolled with a business degree, only 32-credit hours of core courses and electives are required. The available elective concentrations are: Cybersecurity; Data Analytics; and Compliance, Risk and Anti-Money Laundering.
The program concludes with another three-day residency at the Muma College of Business, where students present their final projects and attend the graduation ceremony.
Students in the USF Online MBA program enroll with an average of five years of prior work experience. The average GMAT score of the most recent class is around 570 and the mean undergraduate GPA is 3.3.
