At the Whitman School, students learn, intern, participate in community service and advance their careers through a full spectrum of field-focused and multidisciplinary departments in one of the nation’s oldest business schools. The Whitman School, formally the College of Business Administration, was established in 1919. In 1920, it was only the 16th collegiate business school in the nation to be accredited by the AACSB. In 1948, the school launched its MBA program and the doctoral program was created in 1965.
The school was honored with a naming gift from Martin Whitman ’49, founder of Third Avenue Management, and Lois Whitman in 2003. Seeking to expand opportunities for students, the Whitman School opened its 160,000-square-foot state-of-the-art building in 2005. Today, Whitman programs serve as standards of excellence and achievement among the academic and business community.
At the Whitman School of Management, we believe that a well-rounded education is about more than just studying business courses. It’s about providing dynamic and relevant experiences that ensure our students build a competitive edge in the global marketplace. Our academically rigorous MBA program allows students to build in-depth specializations that will help them to become leaders in their fields.
Students in the Whitman MBA program at Syracuse University receive a comprehensive education that incorporates both the theoretical background and practical experience needed to succeed in today’s ever-changing global economy. The experiential learning component encourages students to apply classroom learning to business problems, connect with decision makers, and deliver tangible results that add value to sponsoring organizations. Students build an experiential portfolio through internships, consulting, specialized courses, community engagement, and other practical experiences that make them more valuable in the marketplace.
The program requires 54 credits of which 36 are core credits and 18 are electives (or specialization area credits). All students enrolled in the MBA program will complete the mandatory 36 core credits. For the 18 elective credits, students can choose from a range of courses available to them in their chosen areas of specialization: accounting, business analytics, entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises, finance, marketing management, real estate and supply chain management. Of the 18 elective credits, 6 credits will count towards the experiential learning portfolio. Students can complete the 6-credit requirement in a number of ways - by completing an internship between years 1 & 2 or by taking courses for earning experiential learning credit or by participating in consulting club projects.
