Michael Harward, UAB MBA '14 shares his story

With an engineering degree from Duke University, Michael was interested in an MBA to help refine and develop skills that would allow him to “pursue his interest in helping an organization develop a vision and think through how to get there”.

Living in Birmingham with his wife, who was already pursuing another master's program, practically guaranteed him at least a couple of years in the Magic City. He began evaluating different options. “I decided that pursuing an MBA in person (rather than an online program) would provide a much more valuable experience,” says Michael. “Also, UAB's superior academic reputation as compared to other local peers drew me to UAB’s MBA program.”

Michael was connected to his current employer, SCA (Surgical Care Affiliates), through the MBA program and now after only 1.5 years is in a leadership position within the Financial Operations department. “The MBA program prepared me to engage with senior leadership within the company, create innovative solutions that contribute to our group's strategy, and manage my team effectively,” says Michael. “Also, I feel capable of thriving within a large company or leading as a part of a start-up. My ability to evaluate the soundness of a business plan or idea separates me from many of my peers.”

How was Michael’s experience in UAB’s MBA program?

“The program does an extraordinary job connecting students to the current business environment,” says Michael. “The latest trends, developments, and events of today's business world were almost constantly discussed in the classroom. Plus, the program provided excellent networking opportunities.”

The non-degree category serves students who do not wish to pursue a graduate degree at UAB, as well as those who wish to begin graduate study before being admitted to a degree program. Non-degree seeking admission is available for those that meet all admission requirements or already hold a Masters degree. Students with an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher may apply for non-degree seeking admission with approval of the MBA Program Coordinator.  Non-degree seeking students can take up to 12 hours of coursework, and must be cleared through the Graduate School of Management to register. Degree seeking students have priority to courses.

Because of U.S. immigration requirements, international applicants (i.e., those who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents) cannot normally be considered for the non-degree seeking category unless already residing in the United States. Immigration laws should be consulted to determine eligibility of students.

When any individual applies to a graduate program, a major part of the admissions decision involves an estimate, based on the applicant's academic history, of whether the applicant can perform satisfactorily at the graduate level. To be re-admitted, applicants who have previously been dismissed from the Graduate School must present convincing evidence to the faculty and the Graduate School dean that a substantial improvement has occurred so that it is probable that the applicant can now perform at the required level in graduate work.

After a student has been dismissed from the UAB Graduate School, no new application for admission (either as a degree-seeking student or as a nondegree student) will be considered until at least two regular terms have passed.
The records of students who have not registered for courses for one year or more, will be removed from the UAB computerized registration system. Such students must apply for re-admission before they may register again. Degree-seeking students who (1) have been absent one year but have registered for and passed at least one course at UAB within the last five years and (2) have not attended any other university or college in the interim and (3) wish to return to the graduate program to which they were earlier admitted may complete the Application for Re-admission to a Graduate Degree Program and pay the required processing fee. These re-admitted students must meet the degree requirements operative at the time of re-admission. Students who wish to return to the nondegree category after an absence of one or more years must submit a new Nondegree Application Form along with the required processing fee.
