Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Management
The Management curriculum is broad in nature and designed to provide professional education for management positions in private and public organizations. The program also provides a foundation for graduate study and professional development. The wide variety of courses allows students to develop knowledge and skills in behavioral management and human resource management.
All students with a major in Management are required to follow a prescribed curriculum for the freshman and sophomore years. The Management major consists of 24 semester hours beyond the required Business and Liberal Arts core and must include Mgmt 383 (Human Resource Management), Mgmt 391 (Organizational Behavior), Mgmt 485 (Selection and Placement), Mgmt 494 (Compensation Management), and Mgmt 582 (Employee Relations), as well as 9 additional hours of approved undergraduate management courses. The B.B.A in Management can also be completed at our branch campuses at Southaven and Tupelo.
Master of Business Administration (M.B.A)
The MBA Program at the University of Mississippi provides rigorous and practical training in all of the core areas of business management. The program can be completed in as little as one year, but students can enroll on a part-time basis for exceptional flexibility in meshing work and family obligations with graduate studies.
Students can choose either a traditional classroom-based format in the Campus MBA Program (MBA), or an on-line course format in the Professional MBA Program (PMBA).
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Business Administration
The doctoral program in Business Administration seeks to develop capable educators and scholars. Students are trained to conduct independent academic research to facilitate the development of the field of marketing. Graduates of our program typically become successful faculty at research-oriented universities.
The success of the doctoral program is largely due to the faculty’s commitment to mentoring students. Students work closely with faculty as they build competency and credentials in the craft of academic research and publication. Our conscious decision to combine modest size with high-contact, quality instruction has allowed us to create a superior learning environment—one that emphasizes rigor and individual attention while offering a generous degree of personal flexibility.
