Hampton University's . in Business program does not have teaching assistantships or other research work that require students to be in residence at the physical campus. The program is geared toward working professionals who want to pursue an advanced education in a part-time format while continuing their employment. Those who already hold a master's degree and are interested in academic or consulting careers are also encouraged to apply. Students without a master's degree in a relevant field must take nine credits of prerequisites in quantitative analysis, economics, and accounting before beginning their curriculum sequence.
