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 either 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.
