Master of Science in Business Education.
The MSBE is a non-licensure degree that assumes an undergraduate knowledge base in business and education which students with undergraduate degrees in business education will normally have acquired. Students admitted with a non-business undergraduate degree may have to complete foundation courses before enrolling in any business graduate course. Specific requirements will be determined by the department chair and the program coordinator. The responsibility for demonstrating prior academic coverage of the material at the appropriate level rests with the student and should be completed at least one month prior to the beginning of the first semester of coursework.
Students with a non-business undergraduate degree should expect to complete foundation courses as required to enter courses that have an MBA designation. Foundation courses may not count as part of the MSBE required courses. Some or all of the foundation courses (up to 17 hours) may be waived based on an individual's previous academic work.
This 34-hour program requires:
- TCH 401 (3 credit hours)
- TCH 407 or TCH 410 (3 credit hours)

Repetition of Courses in the MSBE Program
The College of Business only allows students to repeat a course once. Students who earn a “W” grade in either attempt must apply for permission to complete a third enrollment.
