Independent Study

The Independent Study is available to students who would like to explore a specific area of research; the nature and extent of this independent study are determined by the student and a faculty sponsor.

Students are expected to commit to the original project plan approved by the faculty sponsor; any change to the topic or scope of the project must be agreed to by the professor. Students who fail to obtain this approval risk not receiving academic credit for the course.

The student may register for an independent study worth either 1.5 or 3 credits. No more than six credits of Independent Study will be counted toward the MBA degree.

Students should bring a completed Independent Study Application form, signed by the faculty sponsor, to the EMBA Student Affairs office to register for the course before the end of the semester's add/drop period.

The Faculty Directory can be searched by name, division or area of expertise, and is a useful resource when exploring possible faculty sponsors. Students should contact faculty directly with inquiries about sponsorship.
