By the end of sophomore year, students are required to declare a major area of study. During junior and senior years, students must continue completing the Core Curriculum and the requirements for their chosen major area of study.

To graduate, students must have at least a 2.0 overall grade point average (GPA) and a 2.0 GPA in business and economics courses.

In addition to their major, students may also choose to specialize in a concentration. Adding a concentration allows MBS students to specialize beyond their major field and learn essential skills for future learning and career development.
