MBA Degree

The MBA degree from Auburn Montgomery's College of Business is earned by successfully completing a ten-course program. The program may require as many as eleven basic mini-courses to be taken as prerequisites to the ten-course program for those without business undergraduate degrees. An undergraduate degree in any field and a GMAT score is required for admission to the MBA program. The core and elective courses in the program are carefully selected based on the needs of employers, and the courses are offered in the evenings in both a traditional classroom and hybrid classroom/online format. Traditional classes meet twice per week, and hybrid classes meet just once per week, supplemented with outside assignments. Candidates seeking entry to the MBA program should plan to do well on the GMAT, make a coursework commitment, and secure funds to pay tuition and fees. 

GMAT Score

This program is open to graduates from any field who have demonstrated capability to undertake graduate study. Evidence considered includes undergraduate degree transcripts and acceptable scores on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). International students must also meet the admissions criteria as listed in the Auburn Montgomery Graduate Catalog.

Coursework Commitment

Most students take two years to complete their MBA degree. However, completion time varies from just over one year to more than two years, depending on the number of courses students take each semester and their educational background. The number of courses students choose to take usually varies by the demands of work and family. The total number of courses students take depends on the extent of their undergraduate education in business. Students whose undergraduate major was in business are usually exempted from some or all prerequisite courses. Contact Jennifer Taylor at to see if you will need to take any prerequisites.
