The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is designed for working professionals seeking a competitive advantage in the business world. This 33-hour program provides students with the skills required to successfully serve as leaders in business.
Cameron's MBA program is designed for the individual who wishes to acquire management-related competencies, skills, and integrated understanding for business and business-related environments. The program emphasizes theory and a practitioner's orientation in preparing students for management positions. The three goals of the Cameron MBA program are to:
1. Provide graduates with foundational knowledge at an advanced level;
2. Provide graduates with critical business skills and competencies required for effective management of modern business; and
3. Provide students with an understanding of the process of integrating and applying core competencies and skills in business or business-related environments and/or situations.
The program is available in two convenient formats:
- Online: Completely online; great for students who move often because of the military or career obligations.
- Traditional: Provides flexible evening classes both on-site and through interactive television (ITV). Courses are taught on the main campus and sent via OneNet (interactive television) to other locations in Oklahoma.
(Students with a non-business undergraduate major may be required to take up to four leveling courses which may extend the time required to complete the program.)
Students who complete the MBA program will obtain expertise in the following business disciplines:
- Business Strategy
- Management Information Systems
- Human Resource Management/Organizational Administration
Students are required to pass a comprehensive examination confirming they are fully prepared to succeed in the business arena. Comp information is available through the Graduate Advisor and online at the Graduate Studies website.
