You are in the main content


Prospective Students

Thank you for your interest in the JMU Innovation MBA Program. If you would like an information packet sent to you, please send your name and mailing address to mba@jmu.edu. If you have questions about the program, please contact the Director of the MBA Program, Dr. Mike Busing at (540) 568-3058 or busingme@jmu.edu.

The first cohort started August 2009.  The sixth cohort will start in August 2014.

Prerequisite Courses

Students who do not hold an undergraduate business degree must take certain prerequisite courses to be eligible for admission into the MBA Program. These prerequisite courses can be taken on campus at JMU or at other accredited institutions of higher education, including community colleges, that offer an equivalent course. If there is a question whether a course taken at another school meets this requirement, please contact the Director of the MBA Program for his approval.

The three prerequisite content areas are:

  • Statistics
  • Financial Accounting
  • Foundations of Economics (Micro or Macro Economics)


Tuition

The tuition for the Innovation MBA program for 2014-2015 is $1245/course ($415 per credit). The tuition will cover almost all expenses associated with the international trip except the airfare to and from China (we will cover airfare travel within China).
