If the student decided to seek entry to the full MBA program, he/she would be required to take the GMAT or GRE and follow normal admission requirements.
Students must attain a business minor GPA of 3.00 to graduate with the minor. The student’s graduate program is responsible for determining acceptance of business courses as electives towards the student’s primary graduate degree.
