Evening & Weekend MBA Program
Evening & Weekend MBA Program Writing Requirement
You need to complete the writing requirement before the start of your elective courses. This requirement ensures that all students graduate with a level of competency in written communications.
Ericka Lutz, our Writing Consultant, will offer a mandatory writing orientation. This workshop will be held your first semester, during one of your class breaks. We will notify you of the date for your cohort's orientation at the beginning of the Fall semester.
To fulfill the writing requirement, you need to receive a grade of "Pass" on two papers. The first paper should be a completed work from the first set of core courses that you attend. The second paper may be submitted from your remaining core classes or a professional business document that you have individually prepared in your current work setting. This document must contain a persuasive element (an analysis or description will not suffice).
To submit a paper, email email@example.com. Ericka will evaluate and return the paper marked as
Consult: Contact Ericka Lutz within two weeks to set up an appointment to go over the paper. A paper marked "Consult" may be changed to a passing paper after the student meets with the writing consultant. Some revision may be required.
If your first paper is marked "Consult," you should meet with Ericka Lutz before submitting a second paper.
Ericka Lutz also offers an optional one-day writing workshop every semester and is available for consultation on all writing issues.
