Curriculum Revision: The last major revision to the current MBA program took place in 1998. New competitors into the MBA program market (both regionally and nationally) have increased the competitive landscape. In the fall of 2012 and spring of 2013, our MBA curriculum revision task force developed a new MBA curriculum which was approved by our Graduate Faculty in April of 2013.
The transition to a revised MBA curriculum begins with the phase-in of six “new” courses in the Spring 2014 semester and will be fully implemented in Fall 2014. Features of the revised curriculum include:
In addition to developing a strong background in the functional areas of business, the UNO MBA program focuses on developing essential leadership capabilities in its graduates.
Expanded core course offerings that include Business Intelligence/Analytics and a Project Focused Capstone course. Incorporation of a Triple Bottom Line wraparound in the curriculum that emphasizes balancing the organization’s focus on Profits, People and Planet. Reduction of the total credits needed to earn the MBA degree from 36 to 33. A change to 2 credit core course offerings that meet one night each week (8 week sessions) from 6-9:35pm, making it possible to complete a total of 4 credits per semester by enrolling in one course in each session.
