Are you looking for career acceleration, career development, or career changeover? The MBA program at MSU Texas enables you to achieve any of your career aspirations. Our MBA program is a valuable and necessary supplement for many with undergraduate degrees in both business and non-business disciplines. At the MBA level, students begin applying real-world examples, both in the form of case studies and hands-on applications. This educational experience becomes one of real-life applications and relevant to your career aspirations.


MBA WITH ACCOUNTING CONCENTRATION
The accounting concentration in the Dillard MBA is ideal for individuals with an undergraduate degree in accounting from an AACSB accredited institution who wish to become a certified public accounting (CPA). It is possible for highly motivated individuals without an accounting degree from an AACSB-accredited institution to use the accounting concentration to complete the educational requirements to sit for the CPA. Doing so would require the individual to first complete about 27 hours of upper-level accounting coursework at the undergraduate level before entering the MBA accounting concentration coursework.


MBA WITH BUSINESS ANALYTICS CONCENTRATION
The Master of Business Administration in Business Analytics provides students the depth of analytics expertise and broad business applications to tell the stories, identify opportunities and threats, and solve business problems by using data. The classes are led by professors from multi disciplines who are passionate about analytics. Students will learn from an intensive curriculum across a range of business functions and explore the latest technology and methods of transforming and translating data into meaningful information to make decisions. Specific tools include Tableau, Python, R, SAS, SQL, and Excel.


MBA WITH ENERGY MANAGEMENT CONCENTRATION
The MBA with a concentration in Energy Management prepares students to join the 400,000 Texans who work in the high-wage energy industry. With the Energy Management Concentration you will learn the worldwide dynamics of energy consumption, along with supply issues that affect energy prices, the cost-competitiveness and technological challenges of sustainable energy sources, and the key processes (and costs) of finding, drilling for, and then producing oil & gas. There will be a similar discussion of the process for new wind and solar farms. You'll also learn how landowners control and profit from the minerals or surface usage for solar/wind, how various owners and companies negotiate the sharing of revenues, and taxation and other accounting issues unique to oil and gas drilling and production. Additionally, you'll learn how to financially evaluate whether to invest in current or new oil/gas/wind/solar production, ways energy companies raise the funds needed to bring new production online, and risk management techniques for fluctuating energy prices.
