Curriculum and Areas of Concentration

Build a Foundation

We don’t underestimate the importance of a solid foundation. Students are required to demonstrate proficiency in six competency areas prior to starting the Graduate Core.

Grow Your Expertise

After fortifying leadership and management skills, our students can take concentration elective courses in order to develop expertise in a specialized area of business. The Butler MBA offers five areas of concentration:

  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Finance
  • International Business
  • Leadership
  • Marketing

International Advantage

The Butler MBA curriculum is filled with opportunities for students to experience first-hand how to apply classroom material to the real world. Our students can even take this knowledge overseas. The Global Business Experience program allows students to analyze international trends that influence the world in a hands-on environment.

Flexible Timelines

The Butler MBA curriculum was designed to promote flexibility, because we know the demands of work and family can be significant. Graduate at the pace that works best for you. Students typically finish in 2 ½ years but can take up to five years if needed. The Butler MBA staff will gladly help create a plan to complete the coursework that accommodates any schedule.
