Niagara University's MBA Program includes a series of six 500 level "prerequisite" courses. This coursework is designed to provide a solid business foundation for students who did not study business related fields as undergraduates. Students who have previously studied the topics covered in 500 level courses, with a grade of C or better, are eligible to have them waived. The chart below describes the course work Niagara University undergraduates must complete in order to be exempt from each 500 level requirement.
All students, regardless of which institution their undergraduate degree was earned at, are eligible to have courses waived. Evaluating non-Niagara University undergraduate coursework for substitution credit will be done on a case-by-case basis. Students that can demonstrate the successful completion of classes similar to the courses listed in the "NU Undergraduate Equivalent Courses" column will be considered for exemption from the corresponding MBA classes. Prospective students are encouraged to contact the MBA office at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions they may have regarding 500 level prerequisite course substitutions.
