Each applicant is expected to have satisfactorily completed the foundation requirements for study in the Beacom School of Business (click on above link).
36-54 CREDIT HOURS REQUIRED
Applicants who enter the program with all 500-level foundation coursework or equivalent courses completed (18 credit hours for the M.B.A./Marketing Specialization) will be given “advanced standing” and will only need to complete the 36 credit hours of advanced course work. An applicant who has not completed any business coursework will have a 54-credit hour program of study. Applicants who have completed some of the foundations coursework, either at USD or as part of their undergraduate program, will have an individualized program of study outlining their requirements for program completion. Challenge exams are available.
