Exit Requirements for Completing the MBA Degree
During the final year of MBA coursework, all students must take Mgmt 689: Business Strategy and Bus 696: Business Case Study. Students should take these courses in the last semester of coursework.

Students present their case solution formally in an oral examination to a committee of three faculty members; two from the School of Business and one from outside of the School of Business. Students must continue to register for Bus 696 until all requirements are completed.
The written document follows the APA style format and must comply with the exit requirements of the Office of Graduate Studies at New Mexico Highlands University.
Upon successful completion of any deficiencies, all coursework, the written case analysis and oral examination, the student will be nominated to candidacy for the MBA degree.
