GPA and Grade Requirements
Students in all graduate degree programs at the University of Toledo must complete all requirements for their program of study with at least a 3.0 (4.0 scale) cumulative GPA at the graduate level. All courses that count towards a graduate degree must be passed with a grade of C or better. There are no grade re-calculations at the graduate level; as such, repeated courses will have both grades included in the cumulative GPA calculation.
Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)
The M.B.A. degree is granted to students who satisfactorily complete a minimum of 33 semester hours at the 6000-level in the College of Business and Innovation. The length of the program will vary depending upon the nature of the undergraduate degree. The program consists of a common body of knowledge (18 hours), core (24 hours) and elective (9 -12 hours) courses. Any or all common body of knowledge courses may be waived for equivalent coverage at the undergraduate or graduate level with a grade of C or better.
Master of Science in Accountancy (M.S.A.)
The Master of Science in Accountancy degree is granted to students who satisfactorily complete a minimum of 30 semester hours at the 6000-level in the College of Business and Innovation. The M.S.A. program is designed to prepare students for a professional career in accounting and to fulfill the requirements to sit for the Uniform CPA Exam in the state of Ohio. Candidates without a background in accounting can be admitted to the program but will be required to take additional courses.
Doctor of Philosophy in Manufacturing and Technology Management (Ph.D.)
The program requires at least 93 semester hours of study beyond the baccalaureate. For a full-time student with only a bachelor’s degree, the course requirements before entering the dissertation stage can be completed in three years. Full-time students with an M.B.A. or a relevant M.S. degree should be able to complete the course work in two years before entering the dissertation stage. During the first year, the students without prior appropriate undergraduate or graduate work in business or engineering will acquire the foundation knowledge in business, engineering and manufacturing technology. Course waivers are possible at the foundation stage by passing competency examinations in appropriate areas.
