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. 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:

  • The grade point average for foundations courses will be calculated and reported separately from 600-level courses.
  • The C grade policy regarding academic warning, probation, and expulsion is not applicable to foundations courses.
  • 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 3.5 or greater GPA at Meredith.  Please see a member of the MBA team for full details and eligibility requirements.
