MBA Prerequisite Courses

All undergraduate prerequisites must be completed by the time the student has completed 15 hours of graduate course work. No MBA graduate course may be taken before the undergraduate prerequisite has been satisfactorily completed. Students who are notified in their acceptance letter that they must complete prerequisites must obtain a grade of "B" or better. (Prerequisite courses cannot be taken by audit or pass/fail.)The following courses are prerequisites to all MBA programs:

  • 51-201 Accounting I
  • 51-202 Accounting II
  • 52-150 General Economics I (Macroeconomics)
  • 52-151 General Economics II (Microeconomics)
  • 53-324 Fundamentals of Business Finance
  • 54-313 Principles of Management
  • 55-330 Principles of Marketing

Students with an undergraduate degree in business usually meet the course prerequisites listed above and can complete the MBA program with 33 hours of graduate courses. Those students from non-business fields can complete the prerequisites by taking the 21 hours of prerequisites from any accredited four-year institution. Students may then complete the program by taking the 33 graduate hours.

Any student who scores 3.0 or less on the writing assessment portion of the GMAT or GRE examination will be required to complete 10-110 Developmental English during the first semester of enrollment. A grade of "C" or better in that class will satisfy the writing sample requirements.
