    MBA Foundation Requirements

    The Masters of Business Administration (MBA) is built upon the expectation that students will enter the program with a solid business background to succeed in some of the core MBA courses. Therefore the MBA requires students to have prior foundational knowledge in all core business disciplines to be successful.

    Students entering in the MBA program without an undergraduate degree in business will be required to successfully complete three MBA preparatory courses (MGMT501, MGMT502, and MGMT503) covering the following areas of business: accounting; economics; finance; marketing; statistics; management; business law; ethics; business policy; business strategy; information technology; operations management; and global leadership.

    If the student can show evidence of a GMAT score of 500 or above or has evidence of significant professional experience in all of the business discipline areas, the preparatory requirements may be waived. Students that can show evidence of successfully completed business law and business ethics courses may have the MGMT501 requirement waived. Students continuing from any of CTU’s non-business bachelor programs are exempt from MGMT501, but must complete the other MBA Foundation Requirements. The preparatory courses are also available to students with an undergraduate business degree who wish to refresh their knowledge in these subject areas.

    MBA preparatory courses must be completed prior to respective MBA required courses that hold MGMT501, MGMT502, or MGMT503 as a prerequisite. Students who do not meet the MBA preparatory requirements will be withdrawn, canceled or transferred from the MBA program. Students must be able to exhibit proficiency by successfully completing the preparatory course with a minimum 70% passing score. If after 5 attempts (applies to each course separately) students do not pass the preparatory course, students are encouraged to work with the Student Advising department if they have questions regarding these preparatory courses, timeframes for completion, or for alternative programs of study as needed.
