Master of Science in Business

The MS in Business (MSB) program requires 36 units of coursework that is comprised of 32 units of core courses and 4 units of elective courses to be complete in three trimesters. The program is designed for students looking to broaden their business acumen and competencies to be an effective business professional. The curriculum covers an array of business foundational concepts, such as finance, organizational behavior and culture, and data analysis. 

Students with proven academic records will also have opportunities to bridge to other programs offered at the Graziadio Business School depending on the program-specific admission requirements. Course transfer credit options will be identified for students wishing to continue their graduate education at PGBS.

MSB program learning goals and outcomes state the educational expectations of student achievement for each degree program. These goals are defined by faculty members to clarify how they intend for graduates to be competent and effective as a result of successfully completing the program.

Global Business Intensive Courses

Two units of credit may be earned by completing one of the Global Business Intensive (GBI) courses offered at locations such as Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, and North America. The short-term intensive courses occur during trimester breaks. At the time of registration for the GBI course, students must have completed a minimum of 8 units at PGBS with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.70.
