Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The newly redesigned curriculum has flexible options that allow you to complete your degree in as little as 16 months or spread the courses out over three or four years.

An MBA can be the key to a higher salary, job security and career advancement. At Framingham State University, our program is delivered by real-world experts and backed by sound academic principles.

Framingham State's MBA program offers two concentrations: management and biotechnology operations. The management concentration is structured to equip mid-level managers and business professionals for leadership and management roles. Students learn to link theory with practice, and to recognize the ethical, legal, and multi-disciplinary demands of a business environment that is increasingly global, technology-oriented, and diverse. The new concentration in biotechnology combines the core elements of the MBA with four key courses from the University's Professional Science Master's (PSM) Degree. Students undertake a highly competitive and desirable graduate track that focuses on both practical industry training and management skills improvement.

If your undergraduate degree was in a different field or you just need to brush up on basic business concepts and get in shape for the MBA program, then sign up for our new "boot camp" course, MGMT 905, Analytical Tools for Managers. This course is intended to give incoming MBA students, who do not have the academic or professional experience in economics, financial accounting, managerial accounting, and statistics, the grounding to prepare for the technical demands of the MBA program. It can also serve as a refresher course for students wishing to reacquaint themselves with the tools and techniques covered in the course before embarking on the core MBA program of study.

"My grandfather started a transportation business in the 1920s. When I was a child, I watched my father create daily schedules, bus routes, and annual budgets and financial needs for fuel and assets on a single piece paper. It was an art knowing how many of the 100 vehicles and drivers were available, stops and precise pick-up times, time between stops, vehicle capacity, weather conditions, cost, etc., all written using a series of codes."
