Those students who hold an undergraduate business degree should be prepared to start the MBA curriculum without any foundation courses. Those who hold an undergraduate degree in an area other than business may be required to complete one or more of the following foundation requirements: 

  • Financial Accounting
  • Managerial Accounting
  • Fundamentals of Economics
  • Understanding Corporate Finance
  • Principles of Management
  • Principles of Marketing
  • Business Math and Statistics
  • Excel for MBA Students

Each of these foundation requirements can be met by successfully completing the appropriate IVY online modules. The self-paced IVY modules can be found online at the mbapreworks website. Once each module has been completed with a minimum grade of 80, a completion certificate will automatically be sent to the department by IVY.

Some of these foundation requirements may be waived by the MBA director for those students who can demonstrate successful prior course work in these areas. The foundation requirements for each student are determined on a case-by-case basis. It is generally expected that students will complete all the necessary foundation requirements before they will be permitted to enroll in an MBA core or specialization coursework.
