Declare a Specialization in MBA Program

Completing a specialized MBA degree may provide a competitive advantage in the job market for students who have a clear preference for a specific business discipline.  It communicates to prospective employers that the graduate has an interest in and has completed advanced course work in a specific area of business.  Applicants to the Rohrer College of Business MBA Program will be able to specify their intended specialization on the admissions application.
For students who enter the college under the general MBA program, or who want to change their specialization after entering, the following steps must be taken to declare or change a specialization in the MBA Program:

  1. Email the Rohrer College of Business MBA Program, at to ask for a Request for Change of Graduate Program form.

  2. Wait to receive a letter from the Graduate School informing you that your request to transfer to the specialization has been approved, and complete and mail back the enclosed Matriculation Form within 30 days.

  3. Check the Banner system to make sure that your new major code is reflected in your student account.

The table below lists the Major/Curriculum Codes for each COB graduate degree program.  Use these codes to indicate your requested new major on the Matriculation Form in the box that says “Curr. Code.”
