Related Information

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 an Academic Advisor to be sure that courses you plan to take will fulfill the prerequisite requirements.

Policy On Credit For Courses Taken Elsewhere

At the discretion of the MBA Admissions Committee, up to two courses may be transferred. Courses should have been completed within the past five years and have earned a grade of a "B-" or better. Courses from graduate programs other than an MBA program are not transferable. Once a student is matriculated at Curry College, no transfer credit will be allowed.

The typical circumstance for transfer credit of MBA coursework is reserved for those students who began an MBA program at another school but for various reasons, such as employment transfer to the Boston area, will matriculate at Curry College.

To have coursework reviewed for transfer credit, students must submit all original syllabi and the Admissions Committee may request further information. Transfer credit is awarded at the discretion of the MBA Admissions Committee and all decisions are final.

Required Immunization Certificate

Massachusetts Law 105 CMR 220.600 requires Curry College to collect a certificate of immunization from all full time students. This applies to any continuing education or graduate student who is carrying a full time course load.

For Continuing Education (CE) students Curry defines full time as 12 or more credits during a semester including intensive courses falling within a semester. As an example, if a CE student takes 6 credits in Term 1 and six credits in Term 2, they would meet the definition of full time.

For Graduate students, Curry defines full time as 6 or more credits during a semester including intensive courses falling within a semester. A MBA student taking one 3 credit course in Term 1 and one 3 credit course in Term 2 would meet the definition of full time. A M.Ed. or MACJ student taking 6 or more credits during fall or spring semester would be considered full time.

If you know what your course load will be and you will meet the definition of a full time student, please plan ahead and file your certificate of immunization prior to or with your registration.  All students who have not filed the certificate and who are found to be in full time status will receive a notice from Curry College that they have 30 days to file the certificate or future registration will be blocked.

Each full time student must provide a certificate of immunization that verifies the student has received the following:

  1. At least one dose of mumps and rubella vaccine(s) given at or after 12 months of age
  2. Two doses of live measles vaccine given at least one month apart beginning at or after 12 months of age
  3. A booster dose of tetanus-diphtheria within the last ten years
  4. Three doses of Hepatitis B vaccine


The certificate of immunization form and instructions can be obtained from any Campus Continuing Education and Graduate Studies Office.
