About this Degree

The Business Administration - Aerospace and Defense Concentration program at the University of Tennessee Knoxville provides a solid grounding in the broad range of business functions. In addition to the traditional MBA curriculum, the program also offers specialized areas of focus (e.g., value stream integration, lean manufacturing, acquisition processes, and industrial statistics), providing students the opportunity to choose an area relevant to their career goals within the context of the aerospace and defense industry. This mix of topical coverage is ideal for individuals with technical backgrounds who are transitioning into program management where business and leadership skills are critical.

The program is completed in three consecutive semesters. Coursework is completed through on campus residence periods, off-campus sites for industry-immersed learning, and via synchronous and asynchronous distance learning. Graded work includes a number of large-scale projects completed under faculty supervision, resulting in significant written reports and oral presentations. Project students are not required to take comprehensive exams as part of the degree requirements. In lieu of comprehensive exams, project students must successfully complete and defend a faculty reviewed Organizational Action Project in order to complete the program.
