Foundation Courses

Students are not required to have completed the MBA foundation courses below prior to beginning the MBA-RD program. However, students who have taken undergraduate business courses may be eligible to have up to five of the MBA foundation courses waived, depending on their undergraduate coursework and academic performance in selected courses. Foundation courses required for degree programs may be waived if students have successfully completed equivalent course work at another accredited institution as part of their previous studies. In order to be eligible for waivers, students must have achieved a grade of B or better in an equivalent three-credit course. Waivers for GSB 611 Economics for Managers and GSB 612 Financial Accounting each require completion of two courses (six credits) of appropriate undergraduate course work with a grade of B or better in each course.

Original transcripts are required for consideration of waivers. Transcripts will be reviewed for waivers at the time of admission, but final approval of waivers may be withheld for students accepted provisionally until full acceptance is granted. In addition to course waivers, students who have successfully completed relevant course work at another accredited graduate program may request to have two courses (maximum of six credits) transferred and applied toward degree requirements.
