Graduate students at the University of Missouri’s Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business have four options for their advanced degrees: a master’s of accountancy, the Crosby M.B.A., an executive M.B.A., or a Ph. D. in accountancy or business administration.
While the school’s Crosby M.B.A. is a full-time program, students can enroll on a part-time basis, but must still attend weekday classes. According to the College of Business’s website, students with prior business experience can waive certain courses and complete their M.B.A. in as few as three semesters. The school’s new executive M.B.A. is a more flexible part-time option for working professionals. The 21-month program mixes online and face-to-face courses.
Students in the M.B.A. program at the Trulaske College of Business choose among finance, management, marketing, and marketing analytics concentrations. Those seeking a dual degree can maximize their time at the University of Missouri by combining their M.B.A. with a master’s in health services management or industrial engineering, or a J.D. from the School of Law. Globally minded students can participate in monthlong and semesterlong study abroad opportunities in India, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Australia.
Notable Trulaske alumni include E. Stanley Kroenke, owner and co-owner of multiple professional sports teams, including the Denver Nuggets and St. Louis Rams; and Rodger Riney, founder of the brokerage firm Scottrade. Walmart founder Sam Walton also attended the College of Business as an undergraduate.
