I have a doctorate already and have circled back to complete an MBA. My doctorate is in another discipline.
My MBA program just told me that, rather than using the proposed course numbers for an analytics track, they will be using the repeatable "Special Topics" 5000 number.
MBA 5510 Data Warehouses will now be MBA 5000 Data Warehouses
MBA 5520 Advanced Queries will now be MBA 5000 Advanced Queries
MBA 5530 Advanced Data Mining will now be MBA 5000 Adv Data Mining
Our course catalog lists MBA 5000 as "Special Topics" and it is shown as repeatable. I am not sure whether my transcript would reflect special topics or the original course title, but I will end up with four instances of the MBA 5000 course number on my transcript.
As someone involved in an academic career, should I be wary of this change? Will other institutions scrutinize the use of this repeatable "Special Topics" course number and/or name?
