About

Social Entrepreneurship strategies began to emerge about the time of the new millennium. Many business organizations have adopted some form of social responsibility strategy since that time. It is the goal of the MBA/SE emphasis to provide graduates with the skills and knowledge necessary to support innovative efforts to successfully implement social entrepreneurship strategies. 
Students will be exposed to new knowledge in the following areas: creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, international business, sustainable supply chain practices, and project management with additional options in community development, community organizing, non-profit fundraising, and social activism.

Accreditation

The MBA is offered by the Rankin College of Business at SAU and is fully accredited by AACSB, International, the premier accrediting body for colleges and schools of business. Fewer than 5% of all business programs worldwide are accredited by AACSB, which indicates the quality of our program.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 2.5

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 2.5 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

A student may be admitted into the MBA program if he/she holds a bachelor’s degree or equivalent from an accredited college or university regardless of the undergraduate field of study. Should a student have an undergraduate degree other than business, prerequisites would include:

  • Six hours of principles of accounting (sophomore level or above),
  • Three hours of business finance or financial management (junior level or above),
  • Three hours of statistics (at the junior level or above),
