M.B.A. – Traditional

MBA Students

We encourage you equally to apply for the Lamar University M.B.A., whether you have an undergraduate degree in business or one in a non-business disciplines. The M.B.A. is a highly respected vehicle for enriching undergraduate study in science and engineering, liberal arts and the social and behavioral sciences, as well as for adding depth to the traditional undergraduate business disciplines.

Business Undergraduates

If you enter the M.B.A. with an undergraduate degree in business from an accredited business school, you will likely have satisfied the graduate leveling work, and all of the nine foundation courses may be waived. The M.B.A. program will then consist of 30 semester hours (12 courses), including eight core courses and nine elective (concentration) courses.

Non-business Undergraduates

If you do not have previous undergraduate study in business, the M.B.A. consists of 36 semester hours (16 courses). The program consists of six leveling courses, a required core of eight courses and four elective courses that will allow you to develop a concentration. One or more of the six leveling courses may be waived if you have completed equivalent undergraduate coursework or can demonstrate proficiency in the area covered by the leveling course.
