The specialization has three specializations: Business Intelligence, International Business, and Hospitality and Tourism Management that each consists of six advanced-level 2-unit courses. In an information-driven global economy, there is a great need for MBA graduates with these specializations. Admission to the Specialization requires successful completion of Foundation and the Core with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Students whose cumulative GPA falls below 3.0 may petition to move forward to the Specialization, but if approved, they will be placed on academic probation. Students who successfully complete the Core but do not continue in the program may earn a Certificate of Advanced Study in Core Business Knowledge. Successful completion of this certificate requires a minimum GPA of 2.5 and a minimum grade of 2.0 in all courses.
