Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)
Students in all graduate degree programs at the University of Toledo must complete all requirements for their program of study with at least a 3.0 (4.0 scale) cumulative GPA at the graduate level. All courses that count towards a graduate degree must be passed with a grade of C or better. There are no grade re-calculations at the graduate level; as such, repeated courses will have both grades included in the cumulative GPA calculation.
The M.B.A. degree is granted to students who satisfactorily complete a minimum of 33 semester hours at the 6000-level in the College of Business and Innovation. The length of the program will vary depending upon the nature of the undergraduate degree and the major selected. The program consists of a common body of knowledge (18 hours), core (24 hours) and elective (9 - 12 hours) courses. Any or all common body of knowledge courses may be waived for equivalent coverage at the undergraduate or graduate level with a grade of C or better.
For a MBA Administration, you must complete the MBA core course requirements in addition to the following:
The MBA Administration concentration/major is designed for students who want the added flexibility of taking courses in a variety of areas.
