The ODU MBA program is designed with both business and non-business undergraduates in mind. Students who do not possess a business undergraduate degree are required to successfully complete the MBA pre-core prior to beginning the MBA core curriculum. This set of five, one credit hour courses is designed to prepare the non-business degree student for the rigors of the MBA core.
The program requires the completion of a minimum of 40 credit hours (36 required core credit hours plus four elective credit hours) to earn the MBA degree for students already possessing an undergraduate business degree and a minimum of 45 credit hours (including the MBA pre-core) for those who possess a non-business undergraduate degree.
