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.”

Foundations of Quantitative Analysis

Admission to the UAB MBA Program requires that students have completed the equivalent of a pre-calculus course with a grade of "C" or better within the past five years.  If an applicant does not meet this requirement, they may be admitted with the contingency of satisfying the requirement during their first term of enrollment. We offer several options for satisfying this requirement.

Option one: Complete MA 105 "Pre-calculus Algebra" at UAB with a grade of "C" or better or complete a comparable course at another college or university and complete the course with at least a "C" grade.  A placement test or other prerequisites may be required for admission to MA 105.  You can call 934-2154 or visit the UAB Department of Mathematics ( ) for more information about taking MA 105 at UAB.

Option two
: Successfully complete the pre-calculus proficiency exam.  Currently enrolled students can take the exam at no cost online via Canvas. Students needing assistance in preparing for the test can use the material provided on Canvas in the Foundations of Quantitative Analysis Course shell. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at (205) 934-8815
