The curriculum requirement for the M.B.A. ranges from 36-45 credits, depending on previous academic experiences. Students who have a 3.00 or better GPA in the M.B.A. program may add an optional concentration in entrepreneurship and innovation, finance, or marketing by taking one additional course beyond the two required for an M.B.A. A concentration is not required for graduation, but it provides the opportunity to study interdisciplinary business issues in greater depth and increase the marketability of a graduate. Students must have a cumulative Samford graduate GPA of 3.00 or better in order to graduate.
* Exemption from ACCT 511, ECON 512, and FINC 514 may be awarded if a student has taken an equivalent accounting, economics, statistics, or finance course at a regionally accredited institution and earned a C- or better.
