Concentrations

New concentrations: Business Intelligence, Human Capital Management

Concentrations in the Midland MBA are completed within the 16-month program by taking two courses in a concentrated area of interest during the elective term. A concentration is not required for the completion of the MBA.  A student led bidding process determines the concentrations ran each year which allows students to choose which concentrations are offered. Courses required to fulfill concentrations will be offered providing sufficient student interest.

For all concentrations, if selected to run, will include two elective courses in that area of concentration, but may vary year over year. Students can choose from a growing number of areas of concentration that would be identified as a concentration of study on the final transcript - or choose to take elective courses without a concentration.
