Because the majority of their students are enrolled at the undergraduate level, the major portion of resources is devoted to the undergraduate programs. However, since the college sees increasing opportunities at the graduate level, a larger percentage of Miller College of Business resources will be committed to continued development and expansion of these programs. The graduate programs include the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Arts in Education (MAE), and Master of Science (MS) in Accounting degrees. In addition to their on-campus MBA Program, the College of Business provides graduate education for part-time students via distance education.[2]
