The MBA degree requires the completion of 36 to 57 credits depending on prior academic coursework. It consists of three segments of courses: the foundation, core and elective courses.

The foundation includes seven courses that ensure that students coming from an academic discipline outside of business can meet the prerequisite business knowledge required before entering the core. These courses must be taken before the core and elective courses, early in the program. Students must earn a "B" or better in each of the foundation courses.

The MBA core includes nine courses. The core courses are designed to provide students with key concepts and strategies that pervade the functional areas of business management today. It constitutes the major common body of knowledge with which students develop critical thinking and analytical abilities in the business world. The courses in the core reflect our commitment to a well-rounded business background.

Students enrolled in the MBA program must take three elective courses. The elective courses provide flexibility in customizing the degree program to suit career goals. Electives are offered in accounting, finance, international business, marketing and management. Students may also participate in an internship, independent study or the Business Plan Contest to fulfill one elective course.

In addition, all MBA students must take a zero-credit Business Workshop at the beginning of the first semester at SUNY New Paltz, which consists of a general orientation, business writing session and an ethics test.
