Requisite Courses and Elective Options
Most graduate programs have a 5000-level introduction course (requisite course) that must be completed before students can enroll in other required courses in their degree program. If students have a significant undergraduate academic background in the same area as their graduate major, they may speak to an academic advisor about requesting a requisite course waiver. If the requisite course is waived, the student must take an elective course in its place. Requisite course waivers do not reduce the number of total credits hours required for the degree.
Please contact an academic advisor about what courses can count as an elective or course substitution, as the available options may differ depending on the academic program. Students enrolled in programs in the School of Business & Technology (SBT) may choose electives from other SBT majors, or from any MBA area of emphasis.
