Graduation Requirements


The student must complete the degree program with minimum GPA of 3.0 and must also satisfy all tuition obligations prior to graduation.  Students must complete a total of 36 semester units of course study, including 24 semester units in core courses and 12 units of elective courses, in order to fulfill the graduation requirements.

Although the GRE or GMAT is not required for admission to MBA program, students are only advanced to candidacy status after successfully completing 9 credit hours of graduate credit with grade point average of B (3.0) or better. A student who receives one F or two C's before advancement to candidacy will be dismissed. After advancement to candidacy, graduate students must maintain a B (3.0) grade point average.

Pre-MBA Courses

Students who have had no prior academic training in accounting, finance, marketing, economics or general management theories are required to enroll in Pre-MBA Survey courses to help them gain an overview of the subject(s) in which the students are inadequate. By completing the pre-MBA course(s), which are one credit unit each, students will be equipped with essential basic concepts that are required to comprehend the graduate level of the subject course(s). Pre-MBA course(s) are recommended to students by the department advisor upon admission evaluation. These courses can be taken concurrently so long they do not compete with the Core course, ie. Survey of Accounting vs Managerial Accounting. Pre-MBA course credits do not count towards satisfying the MBA graduation credit requirement.
