A foundational understanding of the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) acquired during business studies is required before students without an undergraduate degree in business can take the core MBA courses. These students must first complete the CBK business foundation courses. Subjects in these foundation courses, include statistics, accounting, economics, finance, and business law. These courses are taken Credit/No Credit and do not count toward the student's grade point average, which is based on the 12 core courses in the online MBA curriculum. Successful completion of the business foundation courses confers 12 graduate credit hours on the student's transcript and must be completed before taking core courses.
Students who already have an undergraduate business degree can choose to take the additional foundation courses as an option to facilitate a smooth transition into the MBA program. Students with a business undergraduate degree from a non AACSB accredited university are required to take the foundation courses.
Students will register for each course individually. It is recommended to take accounting and statistics alone in a term but the two can be taken together. Business Law and Finance must be taken together to equal 3 hours of registration and part-time status.
