Gonzaga MBA students complete approximately a third of the program (10 credits) in elective coursework, allowing the flexibility to tailor the program based on personal and professional goals. Students can pursue an MBA of Choice (general MBA) by designing their own personalized program with elective credits from multiple disciplines or a Finance concentration by completing nine elective credits in that discipline.
