Prerequisite Courses

Students who do not hold an undergraduate business degree must take certain prerequisite courses to be eligible for admission into the MBA Program. These prerequisite courses can be taken on campus at JMU or at other accredited institutions of higher education, including community colleges, that offer an equivalent course. If there is a question whether a course taken at another school meets this requirement, please contact the Director of the MBA Program for his approval.

The three prerequisite content areas are:

  • Statistics
  • Financial Accounting
  • Foundations of Economics (Micro or Macro Economics)
