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.
If you are an EMBA student, please use the form below to submit an Independent Study application.
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. Please note that adjunct faculty members must be teaching in the semester that they supervise an Independent Study.
If you are a full-time MBA student, do not use the form below. Please refer to this page for application instructions.
