In the Master of Business Administration program, it is believed that managers and leaders should always be about one thing – growth. Whether it is about building the bottom line, advancing an idea, improving processes, or stretching with employees to reach the full potential, business is all about growth. The MBA program focuses on developing the strengths of emerging leaders, helping them to extend their capabilities and create their own paths to prosperity. The accelerated On Campus MBA program features nationally prominent faculty, is cohort-based (students enter and complete the program as a team), and encourages frequent and personal interaction among faculty and students. In addition to rigorous course work, students grow through experiential programs such as MBA+ professional development workshops and consulting projects for actively operating enterprises.
Bioinformatics is a concentration option offered in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology program within the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant Pathology. It involves disciplines at the cutting edge of a revolution in biology. Molecular methods and the use of genetic engineering have given scientists unprecedented power to begin to understand the chemistry of life processes. The Department of BCH-EPP aims to prepare students at Mississippi State in this exciting area. For the Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry, the objective of this curriculum is to provide the student with a strong background in science, and to prepare the student for entry into professional schools, graduate study and/or highly technical scientific careers after graduation. There are sufficient individual choices in the curriculum to allow students to tailor their programs to any of several areas of specialization by appropriate use of elective hours.
Biomedical Engineering is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of engineering that integrates engineering and biomedical and life sciences to solve problems associated with the human body and human health. A formal Concentration in Biomedical Engineering is now offered at the B.S level in the Biological Engineering curriculum for students who chose to pursue Biomedical Engineering as a career. Biomedical Engineering programs are offered through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Bagley College of Engineering. Students in the Biomedical Engineering Concentration will gain knowledge in biomechanics, biomaterials, bioinstrumentation, physiology, and other topics germane to the field. The undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Concentration is excellent preparation for students wishing to pursue graduate studies in Biomedical Engineering. The Biomedical Engineering Concentration is listed as a separate curriculum option and is recorded on the student’s transcripts
