The typical pattern is two courses in the fall and spring semesters and one course in the summer. Summer is accelerated so only one course is advisable.
The MBA is a 16-course program, so it will take you three years and one semester to earn the degree if you take five courses annually. A 10-course MS program will take at least two years following this pattern. Additional time will be necessary if common body of knowledge (CBK) or prerequisite coursework is required.
Taking three to five courses in the fall and spring semesters is considered a full-time course load from the Business School’s perspective. In the summer semester, a full-time course load is two courses.
For financial aid purposes, a full-time course load is two courses in the fall and spring semesters. Please consult the Financial Aid Office for further information.
Please complete a petition.
The petition can be sent directly to an advisor, to the general advising email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or faxed to the advising staff: 303-315-8199.
The advisor will forward your petition and file to the program director for their review. Generally, it takes two weeks to process. The petition and file will be returned to the advisor who will contact you to let you know if your request has been approved or denied.
For some of these requests, additional documentation or steps will be necessary. Please be sure to contact the graduate advisor for assistance, email@example.com.
Graduate transfer courses must meet the following requirements:
Transfer courses meeting the above requirements must be petitioned with the course syllabi to the program director for approval. The petition form can be found here.
Admitted students who have not yet taken a course that they may wish to transfer in, should petition for approval in advance.
Transfer credit limits listed below in semester hours (quarter hours are transferred at a rate of 0.67 Semester Hours = 1.0 Quarter Hours):
The estimated amount is 10 hours of homework per week per course not including class time.
There are three resources to assist you in planning ahead.
In the upper left-hand corner of the schedule planner is the “Term” box. If you access the drop down menu, you will see prior semester offerings.
Course descriptions in the catalog may also list when a course is offered.
After using these resources, you may also contact the program director for their input. Faculty can be found on our website.
Advisors can assist you as well.
The schedule planner has this information. Please click on “Instructor” to access this information. An additional link to this information can be found by clicking on the course title link.
Not for most programs. It will be necessary for MS Information Systems students to declare their specialization after admission.

Consider selecting from any of these courses: BUSN 6520, Managing Individuals and Teams, BUSN 6530, Data Analysis for Managers, BUSN 6540, Legal and Ethical Environment of Business, BUSN 6550, Analyzing and Interpreting Accounting Information. BUSN 6520 and 6540 are subjects that are somewhat familiar to students, so these courses make returning to school more reassuring. BUSN 6530 and 6550 are prerequisites for many of the core MBA courses. The selection of subsequent courses increases greatly once these prerequisites have been completed.
No; however, if you have questions, please contact us at 303-315-8200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Choosing a specialization is not required. However, if you are interested in this opportunity, see the list of specializations, for an overview of the specializations. Please refer to your welcome email for the designated course requirements that fulfill these specializations.
If you choose a specialization, you may declare that specialization at any time prior to your graduating term. To declare or change your MBA specialization, please submit the MBA Specialization Form. The specialization you choose will be documented on your final transcript, but not on your diploma.
