Special Research Projects

There is no thesis requirement for graduation in the MBA program. However, a student in the second year may undertake, with the prior approval of the appropriate instructor, Area Chair, and Associate Dean of Business, to develop an original paper, research study, or project in an area directly associated with their program of study. Special Research Projects must be supervised by a faculty member. Credit for one second-year course will be granted upon satisfactory completion of the project. In order to make best use of this opportunity the student must plan the research and contact a faculty member in the session preceding the one in which they intend to register for the special research project.
