Program of Study

The MBA program consists of 33 semester hours of coursework: eight core courses and three electives. For some students, additional foundation courses (3 to 12 credit hours) may be required, depending on transcript review.

Admitted students must complete necessary Foundations or equivalents as determined by the Director. Enrollment in up to six hours of select 600-level courses is permitted concurrent with or prior to the student’s enrollment in a 500- level course with approval of the Director. All foundations or equivalents must be completed with a grade of C or better.

Up to six hours of 600-level transfer credit may be applied to a graduate degree program at Meredith subject to approval by the Program Director. All transfer courses must carry a grade of B or better and be taken at an AACSB-accredited institution. All requests for transfer courses are subject to approval from the Program Director. Transfer course(s) must fall within the six-year limit for program completion.

For MBA students, the following policies shall apply to required foundations courses:

  1. The grade point average for foundations courses will be calculated and reported separately from 600-level courses.
  2. The C grade policy regarding academic warning, probation, and expulsion is not applicable to foundations courses.
  3. Foundations course hours are not subject to the rule regarding the six-hour limit of C grades applied toward the degree.

The School of Business offers a 5-year accelerated MBA. Any undergraduate student wishing to complete the 4 + 1 accelerated program needs to be admitted to Meredith College. General guidelines and eligibility for this program would be a 3.0 or greater GPA at Meredith. Please see the MBA Director for full details and eligibility requirements.
