Evaluation of Credit for Meeting Foundation Requirements

The MBA Admissions Committee will evaluate previous academic credit for meeting the following foundation requirements:

Accounting Concepts [Financial and Managerial Accounting]


Principles of Finance

Fundamentals of Management

Principles of Marketing

Survey of Economics [Macro and Micro Economics]

Statistical Analysis

Foundation requirements may be completed through a combination of undergraduate and graduate courses taught by North Georgia or other regionally-accredited schools or by successfully passing exams on the topic. Students completing foundation requirements through courses at other universities should seek guidance from the MBA program coordinator regarding the appropriateness of the selected courses.

NOTE: The admission letter for students admitted to the Foundation program will indicate foundation topics that must be satisfied prior to starting the MBA program. The MBA program coordinator will meet with each student individually to address options for completing foundation requirements.

Students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate foundation coursework necessary for enrollment in the MBA program may be eligible for financial aid for any semester in which they are enrolled in at least six hours of required prerequisite courses. Students, meeting these criteria, are eligible for loans for one consecutive 12-month period.
