Overview

The Paul Merage School of Business offers the B.A. degree in Business Administration, the B.S. degree in Business Information Management (offered jointly with the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences), the M.B.A. (Master of Business Administration) degree, the MPAc degree in Accounting, the M.S. degree in Biotechnology Management (offered jointly with the Francisco J. Ayala School of Biological Sciences and The Henry Samueli School of Engineering), the M.S. degree in Engineering Management (offered jointly with The Henry Samueli School of Engineering), the Ph.D. degree in Management, and undergraduate minors in Management, Accounting, and Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The Master’s degree is professional in nature and is intended to provide future managers with a firm foundation in the basic disciplines and in management tools and techniques; the Ph.D. in Management is for those who wish to pursue a career in scholarly research. The undergraduate minor in Management is designed for those who wish to gain some insight into issues of modern management, as well as those who anticipate future graduate work in management. In establishing the undergraduate minor in Accounting, the faculty anticipated two types of students to be drawn to courses in accounting: (1) students preparing for careers in accounting or in other fields that require some knowledge of accounting, and (2) students planning to pursue a graduate degree in accounting who wish early guidance and undergraduate work appropriate to this career objective. The Minor in Innovation and Entrepreneurship provides extensive academic and practical training for students to embark on careers as entrepreneurs (innovating to form new companies) and intrapreneurs (innovating within existing companies).
