University rank #801 (WUR) , MI,
A program leading to the Master of Business Administration (MBA) with special emphasis in information technology and international business is offered by the School of Business Administration. It is designed to educate students for managerial roles in private, public, or not-for-profit sectors of the economy.

About

The MBA program is designed for undergraduate majors from any discipline, including business or management. It is preferred that students with an undergraduate degree in business or one of the functional areas of management have two years of work experience before entering the MBA program. A typical entering class may consist of undergraduate majors from engineering, the natural sciences, the social sciences, computer science, mathematics, business, health care, education and the humanities.

The program is based on the belief that an education in management should:

  • Prepare students for careers involving problem identification, problem solving, decision making and leadership in any type of organization
  • Emphasize the determination of goals and the effective utilization of scarce resources
  • Help students understand and effectively interact with the emerging workplace issues of globalization and diversity
  • Assist students in understanding the effects of, and successfully deal with, the changing social, legal, ethical and technological environments of the organization
  • Stress understanding of human behavior and the organizational setting, for much of management relates to people - understanding them, communicating with them, working with them, and leading them
  • Stress the importance of the management of information technology resources in the successful operation of an organization.
Students in the MBA program may choose to focus their elective work in one of the ten areas of concentration offered at Oakland University or select to choose from a variety of elective courses for more general study. Currently, the MBA program at Oakland University has areas of concentration in accounting, business economics, entrepreneurship, finance, human resources management, international business, management information systems, marketing, and production/operations management and supply chain management.
