iMBA Degree Requirements

Preparation is key to your success in this program. For successful completion of this program, all iMBA students are required to:

  • Complete 72 Credit Hours
  • Complete 4 Core Specializations
  • Complete 2 Focus Area Specializations or 1 Focus Area Specialization & Elective Path
    Option A: Complete two focus area specializations. Select from Digital Marketing, Entrepreneurship & Strategic Innovation, Global Challenges, Business Analytics, and Mergers & Acquisitions.
    Option B: Complete one focus area specialization and the elective path. To complete the elective path, you will select 12 elective credit hours from any focus area course or iMBA elective course. The elective path has no capstone or certificate associated with completion.
  • Complete 2 Specialization Capstones
    Specialization Capstones can be from any of the six specializations completed. All courses in a specialization must be successfully completed to be eligible for the Specialization Capstone.
  • Complete the Program Capstone
    Students are not eligible for the Program Capstone until they have completed 72 credit hours or are concurrently enrolled in the final courses that will bring them to 72 credit hours after completion. No exceptions will be made.
  • Complete Degree within 5 Years
    While our program is designed to be completed in 2 to 3 years, students can take up to 5 years to complete the degree as long as they are making satisfactory progress. The clock starts in a student’s first term as a degree student (time spent as a non-degree is not counted).
  • Earn a Cumulative GPA of 2.75
    This is the minimum GPA required to maintain good academic standing in each term and to graduate. Students who fall below this standard will be placed on academic probation. You will be dismissed by the Grad College if this happens in two consecutive terms.
