Frequently Asked Questions

No. Foundation course waivers are available to any student who completed the appropriate coursework in their undergraduate studies. Example: If you majored in political science in undergrad, and took micro and macro economics with a grade of 'B' or better in the past five (5) years you would be waived from A514 - Economics for Managers. Because of its cohort nature, waivers are not an option in the Weekend MBA program.
Don’t panic! While we plan a schedule for you to complete the Core of the program in 20 months, you are allowed 6 years to finish your requirements. We understand 'life happens'!
