Plymouth State University offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) program in General Management for students who hold a baccalaureate degree and would like to gain a strategic, in-depth understanding of business to support their personal and professional goals. The MBA learning experience is a stepping stone to higher levels of intellectual and career growth, and PSU offers the program in two formats. The MBA program can be completed entirely online, or face to face through PSU's 4+1 cohort option which starts in the summer semester of each year. The 4+1 cohort model is designed to be taken full-time and can be completed in one year. The online program can be taken at a full-time or part-time rate, the part-time rate can be completed in 2.5 years.
The MBA is 36 credits total and 6 of those credits are cornerstone courses. Students possessing an undergraduate degree in business may have the option to waive these Cornerstone courses after an assessment of their undergraduate coursework and grades by the Admissions Review Board. Building on this firm base of business knowledge, the programs extend and refine a student’s business proficiency through a series of theoretical and practical courses. Working with faculty members who have real-world experience in business, industry, and government, students can tailor their program by selecting courses from a variety of business areas and business-related electives.
PSU’s MBA in General Management is accredited by NECHE (New England Commission of Higher Education) and ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs).
