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 foundation 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 the foundation 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 foundation courses are also available to students with an undergraduate business degree who wish to refresh their knowledge in these subject areas.
MBA foundation courses must be completed prior to respective MBA required courses that hold MGMT501, MGMT502, or MGMT503 as a prerequisite. Students must successfully complete and pass MGMT501 prior to starting INTD670 and complete and pass MGMT502 and MGMT503 prior to the end of the first quarter. Students who do not meet the MBA foundation requirements will be withdrawn, canceled or transferred from the MBA program. Students must be able to exhibit proficiency by successfully completing the foundation course with a minimum 70% passing score. If after 5 attempts (applies to each course separately) students do not pass the foundation course, students are encouraged to work with the Student Advising department if they have questions regarding these foundation courses, timeframes for completion, or for alternative programs of study as needed.
