The foundation course requirements should be completed in the initial portion of the student's program of study. Prerequisite course requirements listed in the course descriptions must be followed. Courses in a functional area such as Marketing Management or Management of Financial Resources should be completed prior to more advanced work in the functional area. Any student who feels well-prepared in a particular area may, with permission, substitute a more advanced course in the same area. The course in Managerial Policy and Strategy should be taken in the last year of study, ideally the last semester, to provide a means of integrating the various areas of course work.
Each foundation-level and core-level course will be offered at least one time each year, barring exceptional circumstances. At least two elective courses will be offered each semester. Courses offered during the two summer sessions are determined by a survey of the needs of the students and faculty interests.
