The Foundation is a multi-disciplinary, 500-level pre-MBA program consisting of six 2-unit courses, offered during the 10-week summer session. It is designed as a refresher of basic business courses for those with undergraduate business degrees and as an introduction to business disciplines for those holding undergraduate degrees in non-business disciplines. This 12-unit sequence is required of all entering students. Domestic students with business degrees may petition to waive the Foundation. Admission to the Foundation requires successful completion of the MBA Bridge. Students receive a certificate of completion for the Foundation if they successfully complete all Foundation courses with a GPA of 2.5 or higher. Students who continue in the program to earn the MBA degree must complete the Foundation with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
