  • MBA 240: Corporate Governance and Ethics
  • MBA 245: Leading with Data
  • MBA 242: Evaluating Organizational Performance (prerequisites: MBA 240 and MBA 245)

If you choose to apply for the M.B.A. program, you’ll need to complete the full admission requirements. If you are admitted into the M.B.A., all successfully completed Pre-M.B.A. courses will transfer to your program.
