Business Management

The MBA program, with emphasis in Business Management, is a 43-46-semester hour program. It is designed for individuals to develop professional competence, leadership potential, decision making abilities, and interpersonal skills to serve organizations in managerial capacities.

Admission Requirements

Hold a four-year baccalaureate degree or its equivalent, with a minimum GPA of 3.00 (four-point scale).


  1. Demonstrate a solid understanding in each of the following areas:
    • Accounting
    • Computer Spreadsheets and Word Processing
    • Economics (Macro- and Microeconomics)
    • Finance
    • Management (Theory and History)
    • Marketing
    • Operations Management
    • Statistics

    Most students will meet these prerequisites by earning undergraduate credits with a minimum grade of B in each of the areas. Students may present other relevant documentation to demonstrate satisfactory knowledge in the area. The department will evaluate each student’s application and make the final determination as to whether a prerequisite has been met.

    Applicants should note that AIIAS does not regularly offer most of these prerequisites. Students are strongly encouraged to fulfill all prerequisites before beginning the program. Students applying for admission into the MBA program coming from disciplines other than business should have completed more than 50% of the total number of prerequisites required before they will be considered for admission.

    Students who have completed these prerequisites with a grade of less than B from their respective college/s are subject to the following:

    1. Enroll in the prerequisite subject in other college/s approved by the Department of Business and receive a minimum grade of B.

    2. If the student is able to present evidence of experience related to the prerequisite area for at least three (3) years, he/she may be granted a single opportunity to write a proficiency exam for the prerequisite. If the result is 84% or higher, the prerequisite requirement is considered met.
  2. Demonstrated English proficiency (see Admissions).

  3. If deemed necessary, undergo an interview.
  4. Students must be able to use current information technology such as word processors, spreadsheets, presentation software and the Internet in their coursework.

    Proficiency in mathematics is expected and prior knowledge through advanced algebra (pre-calculus) is assumed. Those who initially lack these skills should plan to acquire them early in their program to help ensure their success.

  1. Complete a minimum of 43-46 semester hours according to the curriculum specified below.
