MBA Program Composition and Foundation Courses

The MBA is designed for those who have the motivation to pursue graduate-level work in business administration, regardless of the areas of their previous studies. Students with business undergraduate degrees need to take a minimum of 36 graduate units. The required seven (7) core courses are limited to the traditional "core" areas in order to permit students the widest possible elective choices in concentrations to tailor the program for individual needs. Students who do not have previous post-secondary education in areas important for business studies may be required to complete up to 18 units of courses in the following areas: business foundations, accounting, mathematics, economics, statistics, finance, management, psychology, marketing, or computer science. Foundation courses will be determined based on the assessment by the Provost, Registrar, or an academic advisor. Appropriate adjustments, based on individual background, may lead to somewhat different requirements. All foundation courses should be completed during the first 24 credit units of the study.
