Several versions from the Master of business administration program can be found (Entrepreneurship (IBP), Research/Thesis, Clean Technology, Accounting). All these versions features its own specific course and exit needs and nominal duration. Some versions e.g. Entrepreneurship and Accounting could be carried out three academic terms for full-time students having a BA/BS running a business or individuals who’ve completed the foun-dation courses. Full-time students without any previous business or business-related course work can com-plete this program in as couple of as six terms. Your final dental examination is needed for those versions from the program. The StudyOrDissertation form of this program needs a thesis.”
This paragraph isn’t correct with this proposal. The rest of the options haven’t been approved and can follow that one so you just mention the thesis option within this one. Another verbage could be added as individuals new choices are approved.

Program Title: Mba course (MBA) - Thesis Option
CIP Code: 520201
College/Department or College/School: College of economic / No Department
Program Type: Undergraduate Option
We advise the inclusion of the Thesis Option within the OSU-COB Master of business administration program. This method is supposed to offer Master of business administration students and COB faculty with joint research interests an chance to take part in research included in the students’ Master of business administration program.
This two-year option, including 47 course and thesis credits carefully follows the present Master of business administration program but provides an alternative group of credits to exchange the present program’s Integrated Strategic Business Plan (IBP) component. The Thesis Option could be summarized the following (for details see Table 1 ):
· 33 credits of ‘regular’ course work: the 11 non-IBP coursesthree credits eachin the present program.
· one four-credit course in Research Methods.
· one four-credit Studying Conference composed from the following:
o Study of the discipline-specific core literature, based on the discipline from the student’s consultant.
o Study of the subject-specific literature tuned towards the research subject to become addressed within the thesis and based on a student together with the thesis consultant.
o Thesis proposal.
· Thesis (6 credits).
We provide that even though this option will attract couple of students, it will fill an opening in the present Master of business administration program, namely the possible lack of possibilities for educationally-inclined students and school to take part in joint research.
The Thesis Option covers all Master of business administration core learning objectives as recognized through the COB faculty by including in the program all of the courses presently within the IBP-based program, aside from the IBP courses themselves.
Additionally to those core learning objectives, the Thesis Option will establish the next learning outcome:
· Graduates can design, execute and set of business research problems as well as their solutions. Including:
o Making a listing from the existing academic literature regarding a particular research subject.
o Formulating research questions.
o Formulating an investigation arrange for investigating the study question.
o Executing the study plan i.e.. collect and evaluate the information.
o Set of the study findings, in dental and written formats.
