Flex MBA

The McCoy Master of Business Administration (MBA) Flex Program is designed for working professionals who need flexibility in scheduling classes due to the demands of a career or family. There are no leveling course requirements for this program and students are accepted from all undergraduate academic disciplines. While the part-time format enables students to continue working while earning their MBA, work experience is not required.

Convenient Times and Locations
Classes are offered exclusively in the evening. Each class meets one evening per week and the average course load is two classes (6 credit hours) per semester. Classes are offered on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals. There are no Friday or weekend classes. All courses for the McCoy Flex MBA Program are offered both at the San Marcos Campus and at the Round Rock Campus.

A Graduate Experience Beyond the Classroom
While there is no denying the importance of a rigorous academic curriculum, the McCoy MBA experience goes beyond the classroom to ensure our graduates have both the hard and the soft skills necessary to excel in today's business environment. McCoy Flex MBA students are given the option to participate in an annual study abroad trip which not only provides meaningful international business experience but also affords six hours of elective credit. Flex MBA students are also given the option to complete an internship for (elective) course credit during the program, and occasionally an internship may be performed with the student's current employer. Professional development opportunities in the form of guest lectures, panel discussions, and business etiquette training are offered on an ongoing basis. Twelve (12) Professional Development ("PD") units, in addition to the academic credit hours, are required for graduation.

Accreditation and Assurance of Learning

Every academic program at Texas State University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Programs offered by the McCoy College of Business are additionally accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International). AACSB accreditation is the highest recognition a business school can receive, and fewer than 5% of all business schools in the world earn AACSB accreditation. As part of the compliance requirements for SACS and AACSB, student learning is continually assessed through a set of student learning outcomes for each program.
