Undergraduate Pre-requisites: Basic undergraduate preparation in Business Administration is a requirement for taking graduate level courses leading to an MBA. A student with a bachelor of business degree or its equivalent normally will have completed the basic courses needed. A student whose undergraduate degree is in another discipline can meet these requirements by completing two additional courses that may be taken in the classroom or online
- Principles of Microeconomics (3 hours)
- Principles of Macroeconomics (3 hours)
As an alternative, a student can demonstrate proficiency in the above areas on an approved test, such as the CLEP test. A student must earn a “C” or better in all prerequisites. The dean may require that a student
repeat certain prerequisite courses taken as an undergraduate. A student will not be admitted to candidacy for the MBA prior to having completed these prerequisites. Courses may not be taken for graduate credit without the proper prerequisite for that course. Students may take up to six (6) credits of graduate work while completing the undergraduate prerequisites. These courses are not part of the core requirements for an MBA.
The MBA cost per credit hour for the 23/24 academic year is $733.33 or $2,200 per 3-credit hour course.
Additional fees may apply to individual courses within the degree. For information on financial aid programs, please contact the MBA program coordinator at email@example.com.
