Non-Degree Program

The Non-Degree MBA program allows prospective students to begin taking MBA courses before becoming matriculated. As a Non-Degree student you can take up to five MBA courses (maximum of two per semester). These courses will count towards your MBA degree once you are accepted as long as you receive a grade of “B” or better.

Benefits of the Non-Degree Program

  • If you have a low GPA, this is a good way to prove to the Admissions Committee that you can handle the course load of the MBA Program.
  • It allows you to begin taking courses while preparing for the GMAT.
  • It allows you to get a good feel for what MBA courses are going to be like once you are accepted into the program.
  • Doing well in a non-degree course can improve your chances of becoming accepted to the Part-time MBA program or Full-time MBA Program.
