Upon admission, all students are placed into either a “Blue”, “Orange”, or “Cyber (Hybrid)” track designation and notified via their admissions email. Students trying to enroll in a course outside of their track will receive an error message. This is to help prevent inadvertent enrollment that could delay your time to graduate.
Most OMBA students complete the degree in two years, taking one class per 7-week session. While the sequencing of courses is flexible, we recommend staying on your assigned course track to ensure your courses are all available to complete in two years. Core courses are exactly the same on both tracks.
Tracks are generally assigned as follows:
- Legacy students (all admits prior to Fall 2020 semester)
- General or Management MBA students
- Healthcare Leadership students
- Construction Management students
- General or Management MBA students (Fall 2020 and beyond)
- Marketing Leadership students
- Finance students
- Business Analytics students
Cyber (Hybrid) Track:
- Cyber Operations students
In some specific situations, it could be advantageous for students to take courses from both the blue and orange tracks. For example, if a Blue Track student skips a course in a session, a course in the Orange Track may be available sooner to help expedite graduation. In these situations, your advisor can provide a permission number to help you enroll in an Orange Track course.
For some General MBA students taking Healthcare Leadership or Construction Management courses, you may need to get a permission number to take these courses on the Blue Track. Please contact your advisor with questions.
