Any or all courses with a 400 number may be waived if the student has taken an equivalent course at the undergraduate or graduate level. In addition, any of the basic foundation courses may be waived by examination. There is a non-refundable fee charged for each waiver examination taken. The Graduate Business Admissions and Petitions Committee will review an individual's undergraduate (and graduate) transcript(s) when he/she is accepted into the program. The student will be informed by letter which foundation courses (if any) were waived and an outline of his/her course of study will be included.
The conditions for waiving a specific course are as follows:
MBA 49 Analytical Methods for Business Decision-Making - successful completion of a statistics course
MBA 497 Accounting and Financial Concepts - successful completion of a two-semester Principles of Accounting course
MBA 498 Economics Concepts - successful completion of a two-semester Principles of Economics course
MBA 499 Management & Marketing Concepts - successful completion of both a Principles of Management course and a Principles of Marketing course
A minimum grade of "C" denotes successful completion for any undergraduate course an individual wants to use to waive a foundation course; a minimum of "B" is necessary in a graduate level course. The student may elect to take any foundation course he/she feels would be beneficial even if the requirement has been met. This is frequently done when there is an extended time between the student's successful completion of the undergraduate course in question and beginning the MBA program.
