MBA Specializations

The focus of the Fisher International MBA program is International Business, and students are not required to declare a "major." However, many students select an area of specialization based upon their career interests.

    Specialization Requirements

    If the above specializations do not fit your needs, you may design other topics as appropriate.  Specializations should comprise a minimum of 5 courses AND the equivalent of 15 credits of elective level coursework. Semester-length courses, workshops, and directed studies, may be included.  You may supplement with courses from other graduate programs if they tie into your topic.

    Details of specialization requirements may be found on the MBA Specialization Proposal Requirements page. Partial credit may be granted for some courses not on approved lists with approval from the GSIPM Assistant Dean. For more information about various specialization tracks, please contact the MBA Academic Career Advisor.
