MBA Information Systems
Common Body of Knowledge
(18 hours maximum)
These courses represent the minimum background required of students prior to taking 6000-level courses in the M.B.A. program. Students admitted to the M.B.A. program can meet the requirements by taking the 5000-level courses or by proficiency examination. If a student can demonstrate that he/she has completed equivalent course work at the undergraduate level prior to admission to the M.B.A. program and has earned a grade of C (2.0) or better in the course(s), the corresponding 5000-level course may be waived. Once admitted to the M.B.A. program, students may not take an undergraduate course and apply that course towards credit for 5000-level requirements.

The substitution of any courses for a major requires the written approval of the appropriate Department Chair. No more than one independent study/research paper (three hours) may be taken in lieu of a course to fulfill a specialization requirement, and no more than one course will be allowed to count towards two majors in the M.B.A. program.
