  • MBA Program Specializations

     

    NOTE: Program specializations will be available to students enrolled in Capital's MBA program prior to the Fall 2014 term.  For students starting in the fall 2014 term and thereafter, discipline-specific electives and specializations will be phased out and replaced with a series of professional development and certification offerings to complement the MBA degree.


    If you’d like to not only customize your coursework but achieve a specialization as part of your degree as well, Capital has options. You can specialize in entrepreneurship, finance, leadership or marketing by focusing your elective credit hours in one of these areas. You can declare a specialization at any point prior to graduation, as long as you satisfy the program requirements. Specializations will be noted on your transcript. Download the Specialization Declaration Form (PDF) to get started.
