Additional Requirements:
M.B.A. candidates are required to complete three academic development and three professional development workshops. Workshops are delivered through a variety of modalities to meet the demands of the busy working professional. Workshops change each academic term based on market and employer demands. Examples of academic workshops include, but are not limited to, "Big Data," "Data Visualization," "Design Inquiry," and "Making the Most of Infographics." Examples of professional development workshops include, but are not limited to, "Communicating to the Point," "Creating and Delivering High-Impact Presentations," "Great on the Job," "Lunch/Coffee with Leaders," and "Personal Branding." Program administration tracks student completion as students are not be permitted to register for their capstone course unless all professional development requirements have been met.

For Online M.B.A. Students:
Online M.B.A. candidates are required to participate in a one-week on-campus residency. Residency includes networking, professional development, and the first course of the program.

For Students in the Health Sector Management Concentration:
For the Health Sector Management concentration only, Management Grand Rounds (MGRs) are required. MGRs allow graduate students in healthcare management to observe both healthcare administrators and clinicians in the healthcare environment. The hosting institution, in collaboration with the faculty, usually sets an agenda for the visit. MGR sites are selected to represent the breadth and depth of healthcare providers, payers, suppliers, and consultants. The MGR constitutes an excellent opportunity to develop leadership skills related to relationship building/network development, communication, information seeking/management, and professionalism.
