About Kelce College of Business

The Kelce College of Business offers a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. The MBA is a professional program designed to prepare future business executives for the workforce. The Pitt State MBA degree has five emphases or concentrations: general administration, international business, accounting, marketing and human resources.

The MBA program consists of traditional face-to-face classes, online, and hybrid courses. The program consists of 30 credit hours (seven core courses and three electives). Each semester half of the core MBA courses are offered online and the other half traditional. In the following semester, the courses are switched, i.e., the traditional in-class courses will become online. Thus, there will be three delivery systems: a student may take all the core courses in-class, all online, or a mix.
