If you are admitted into the MBA or MSA program, you may be eligible to waive all 700-level graduate business courses if you received a bachelor's degree in business administration from an AACSB-accredited institution in the past seven years, and graduated with a 3.0 GPA or better in the last 60 semester/90 quarter units of coursework. You would only need to take ten (10) 800-level courses to complete the program and will receive a waiver from our office once you are officially admitted to the program.
All other applicants who have completed one or more business courses in the past seven (7) years with at least a B- or better grade, may still be eligible to waive equivalent 700-level braduate business courses. Once admitted to the program, students receive information on how to submit a course waiver form and a course syllabi for an official review of course waivers.
