MBA Pre-Enrollment Competencies

MBA Pre-Enrollment Competencies

Prior to beginning the 30-credit MBA program, you will need to demonstrate competence in seven key business disciplines.      

  1. Accounting         
  2. Finance  
  3. Economics         
  4. Management       
  5. Marketing           
  6. Operations          
  7. Statistics

There are two routes to obtain competence:

  1. Show transcript grades (undergraduate or graduate) of B or better in these courses, within last seven years, AND/OR
  2. Complete modules from MBA IQ for the disciplines in which you need to demonstrate competence.
  • Modules are self-paced and can be started anytime but must be completed prior to enrolling in classes.
  • Students may need all modules or only a few.
  • Students who need to meet competence in all seven areas should complete Modules 100, 200, and 300.
  • To access modules, email Eric Robbins, MBA administrative director.
  • Each module finishes with a pass/fail examination that can be repeated, if needed.
  • Students must attain a “pass” rating and submit examination reports.

All MBA applicants must submit the Proof of Pre-Enrollment Competencies form (PDF) | (Word) to indicate how they have obtained competence.

  • Submit this form prior to your first semester of enrollment.


  • Module 100: Management, also includes Economics and Statistics
  • Module 200: Operations and Marketing
  • Module 300: Accounting and Finance
    Cost: $250 each, $700 for all three
