Prerequisites

Prerequisite courses are an important foundation of the MBA curriculum. Because this unique degree accepts students with diverse disciplinary backgrounds, the prerequisite courses ensure a common ‘language' of business. Some students may have achieved a minimum level of background knowledge in some areas of business through their professional achievements. However, all students must have completed coursework in seminal disciplines. Those are economics, accounting, and statistics.

Therefore, students must complete the following courses in preparation for their graduate program:

  • Principles of Economics - Micro or Principles of Economics - Macro
  • Accounting I and II or Financial Accounting
  • Statistics

Curry College's Division of Continuing Education schedules these courses on a regular basis. Please speak with the Director of Graduate Enrollment or with an Academic Advisor to be sure that courses you plan to take will fulfill the prerequisite requirements.

For more information:

Email John Bresnahan, Director of Graduate Enrollment and Student Services, submit an Advising Request Form, or call 617-333-2243.
