Applicants that do not possess an undergraduate degree in business may be required to complete the foundation course sequence in addition to the 30 hours necessary to satisfy the degree requirements. What foundation courses that may be needed, if any, can only be determined by a review of the applicants’ undergraduate and graduate transcripts (if applicable). The foundation course sequence, or comparable courses or experience, must be completed prior to full admission with at least a 3.0 average and no grade of less than C in any course. The foundation course sequence is as follows:
BUSINESS FOUNDATION COURSES
Principles of Financial Accounting (ACCT 281 is the undergraduate course at MSU)
Principles of Managerial Accounting (ACCT 282 is the undergraduate course at MSU)
Principles of Macroeconomics (ECON 201 is the undergraduate course at MSU)

Note: None of the foundation courses satisfy the requirements of the 30 hour MBA program. They are prerequisite courses only.
