Concentrations

With over 80 faculty and six highly reputable academic departments, the Eller College of Management is able to offer a rich mix of elective offerings.

If you want depth in a particular area such as MIS or marketing, we encourage you to consider a formal concentration in these areas. Eller Evening MBA concentrations require two elective courses that have been designated by the faculty.

Concentration areas will help you compete effectively in the job market for particular professions. For the Evening MBA, your choices include:


 

Accounting/Finance

The Department of Finance at Eller provides access to a wide portfolio of courses for MBA students. A finance concentration is designed for those interested in careers including investment management, hedge funds, and private equity. It is also a good choice for those considering careers in corporate treasury, retail banking, and consumer finance. Those with solid finance backgrounds often fill management consulting jobs and corporate finance positions in other industries–for example, in mergers and acquisitions in many corporate sectors.

Management Information Systems (MIS)

Management information systems (MIS) is the design and management of information technology (IT) for an organization. It focuses on the best way to enable the organization to meet its goals and business challenges. MIS professionals are the “communication bridges” between IT and the business community. They analyze, design, implement, and manage IT strategy to help solve business problems. Enrolling in the MIS/MBA Business Intelligence and Analysis track enables you to gain a competitive edge by learning critical analysis skills and gaining real-world experience in both the business and technology fields.

Marketing

Regardless of the industry, company, or country where you are employed, or the job function you perform, you gain a competitive advantage by enhancing your understanding of the marketing function. Increasingly, organizations are using marketing strategies, tactics, and tools to differentiate themselves and to compete in the global marketplace. The marketing concentration at Eller will strengthen your MBA education and prepare you for careers in brand management, market research, product development, or other marketing functions.
