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.
Common Body of Knowledge
(18 hours maximum)
These courses represent the minimum background required of students prior to taking 6000-level courses in the M.B.A. program. Students admitted to the M.B.A. program can meet the requirements by taking the 5000-level courses or by proficiency examination. If a student can demonstrate that he/she has completed equivalent course work at the undergraduate level prior to admission to the M.B.A. program and has earned a grade of C (2.0) or better in the course(s), the corresponding 5000-level course may be waived. Once admitted to the M.B.A. program, students may not take an undergraduate course and apply that course towards credit for 5000-level requirements.

(Minimum 9 hours)
Each student may select up to two majors. An alternative is to select the general administration major described below, which is designed for students who prefer to take a variety of electives in different areas. The substitution of any courses for a major requires the written approval of the appropriate Department Chair. No more than one independent study/research paper (three hours) may be taken in lieu of a course to fulfill a specialization requirement, and no more than one course will be allowed to count towards two majors in the M.B.A. program.
The Administration major is designed for students who want the added flexibility of taking courses in a variety of areas. The Administration major is completed by taking three 6000-level M.B.A. electives within the College of Business and Innovation. Students are not permitted to take PUBH courses from the Healthcare Systems Management major toward the Administration major. However, students are permitted to complete BLAW 6100 Business, Government and Society, EFSB 6590 New Venture Creation, or EFSB 6690 Technology Commercialization.
