Concentrations are a lot like choosing a major for an undergraduate program. While you will still take the main courses you would expect to find in an MBA program, you will also take courses with content that focuses your knowledge of a niche professional role or a core industry. For instance, some specializations available throughout the country include business analytics, public policy, and international business.
