Eighteen credit hours are taken in six core courses, which provide the student with the foundation of general business knowledge. Thirty credit hours are taken in 10 courses of a general management M.B.A. curriculum. This program of study is not the same as the On-Campus M.B.A. Program. Students should consult the M.B.A. Program Director and the Univeristy of Texas System Online Consortium ( for further information.
