College of Business at Stony Brook

The College of Business offers an MBA degree with concentrations in finance, marketing, health care management, human resources, information systems management, and general management. The regular MBA consists of a 60 credit program plus an internship. Students with more than five years of business experience or an advanced degree beyond the bachelor's may qualify for a 12-credit waiver, and graduate with 48 credits. Courses for the MBA program are held during the day, in the evening, and on Saturdays. Most courses are offered on the Stony Brook campus, but a few courses are offered in Manhattan on weekday evenings for the convenience of students who work or live in New York City.

The college also offers its Stony Brook Fast Track MBA Program, which consists of a combined undergraduate degree and MBA degree, typically taken over a five year period. Students in this program complete undergraduate majors outside of the College of Business and take the regular MBA program with courses beginning in the summer before their junior or senior years.

Agreements between several Stony Brook departments and the College of Business have been made to offer students joint degrees. Joint degrees offered include an MS in biomedical engineering/MBA, MS in mechanical engineering/MBA, MPH/MBA, MS in computer science/MBA, MA in public policy/MBA, MD/MBA, and an MA in art history and criticism/MBA.

In addition, advanced graduate certificate programs in health-care management, human resource management, and information systems management are open to MBA students or other graduate students at Stony Brook. Students who meet the MBA degree admissions requirements of the College may also apply the certificate credits toward the MBA degree. These programs are also open to non-matriculated students who wish to earn advanced graduate certificates without completing MBA degrees. Students should note that, although it is a valuable academic credential, an advanced graduate certificate is not a degree.
