An applicant is not required to have majored in business on the undergraduate level. However, certain core competencies from undergraduate courses must be demonstrated (with at least a “C-”) to register for some required M.B.A. courses. Core competencies that meet requirements are listed below (along with PCC courses).
A student may begin M.B.A. courses prior to meeting all competency requirements.
- Accounting—Introductory courses (AC 231 and 232)
- Computer Security—Introductory course (CS 271)
- Database—Introductory course (BA 330 or CS 303)
- Finance—Corporate Finance—one year (BA 301 and 302)
- Marketing—Foundational course (MK 204)
- Statistics—Upper-level course (BA 322 or MA 326)
Students may satisfy these core competencies while taking M.B.A. courses, but the time to complete the M.B.A. will increase.
All Applicants Must Submit the Following:
