All students entering the MBA Program must, by academic background and/or business experience, be knowledgeable in the areas of accounting, economics, finance and statistical analysis. Students without these qualifications will be required to take the appropriate foundation courses. There are four (4) foundation courses: (1) Accounting; (2) Finance; (3) Economics; and (4) Quantitative Methods.


Prior Credit/Transfer Credit Policy
A maximum of six (6) semester hours or 10-quarter hours of graduate academic credit may be transferred from an AACSB accredited academic institution. The credit must be in courses similar in content and rigor to Jacksonville University's MBA Program, and the grade must be at least a "B." To be eligible for transfer credit, the student must submit a transcript and catalog description of the course(s) to the Director of Graduate Business Programs. All courses submitted for transfer credit consideration must have been taken within five (5) years of beginning the MBA program. Any work transferred to Jacksonville University will be entered on the JU transcript as hours earned only and will not be used in computation of the grade point average.

Students admitted to the MBA Program will normally be expected to satisfy degree requirements by taking courses at JU. Permission to take a course at another institution for transient credit will only be granted in the presence of extenuating circumstances. The Director of Graduate Business Programs must approve transient study in advance of the student taking the course. Transient credit will only be awarded if the grade earned in an approved course is at least a "B."
