Bring Your Own Device

The College of Business uses a "Bring Your Own Device" instructional model for graduate education. We recommend all graduate business students purchase a laptop computer that meets the "Bring Your Own Device" specifications. Laptops are required in several courses, each of which is noted each semester in the College's graduate Course Schedule (above).  

Graduation and Commencement

All students must apply to graduate. We urge you to apply immediately after registering for your final semester so that we can complete your degree audit and give you time to change your final course selections if necessary.

If you wish to attend the optional commencement ceremony, fill out the separate commencement request form. August graduates may attend the December commencement ceremony.
