The MS degrees are awarded exclusively to students who are enrolled in a PhD program. The program leading to the MS degree (in disciplines other than accounting) allows more specialization than the MBA program and may be adapted to a student’s particular needs. The requirements are as follows: Completion of the AACSB International core areas as specified by the department in the Graduate School of Management in which the majority of specialization takes place. For students without academic preparation in business, completion of the common body of business knowledge usually amounts to satisfying the MBA core courses. The manner in which this requirement is satisfied is determined by the student in consultation with his or her program committee and subject to approval Completion of a minimum of 45 graduate credits beyond the MBA core courses. These should include the following: A minimum of 18 credits of course work in the primary area of specialization. A majority of this work should be taken in the college. However, specialization is defined by a subject of study and is not limited to courses offered by one department or by the Graduate School of Management; A minimum of 12 credits of course work in a secondary area of study either in the Graduate School of Management or in a related field; A maximum of 15 credits in electives. A maximum of 9 credits of Thesis (503) can be taken at the option of the student and the program committee. For students choosing to complete a thesis, the number of credits taken for the thesis is deducted from the required number of elective credits; a minimum of 27 graduate credits taken in the Graduate School of Management; Approval of the proposed program of study by a program committee of at least two faculty members. At least one faculty member must be from the department in which the majority of specialization courses are taken: The composition of the program committee must be approved by the director of doctoral programs; An approved program of study must be submitted before any courses beyond the common body of business knowledge can be taken; If a thesis is undertaken, approval is required by a thesis committee of at least two faculty members. At least one faculty member must be from the department in which the majority of specialization courses are taken; the composition of the thesis committee must be approved by the director of doctoral programs. The thesis committee may have different members than the program committee. A thesis proposal must be approved in writing by all members of the thesis committee and submitted to the assistant dean for graduate programs before substantial work is undertaken on the thesis. In case of disagreement between thesis committee members over the acceptability of the thesis, the issue is resolved by an ad hoc committee of at least three faculty members appointed by the head of the department in which the majority of specialization courses has been taken.
