Undergraduate PrerequisiteRequirements

In order for a course to meet the prerequisite requirement, the student must have

earned a grade of C or better. The following prerequisite classes taken in the

student’s undergraduate career do not have an expiration date: OMGT 4313,

OMGT 4323, OMGT 4333. All students beginning the program Fall 2014 and

beyond will be required to take the OMGT 4853 Data Processing Systems

proficiency exam or the 8 week course.


Options for satisfying program undergraduate prerequisites

Options for Satisfying Program Undergraduate Prerequisites

  • A student may have completed a similar course in his/her undergraduate course work. We identify such similar courses in our regular evaluation of student transcripts during the admission process. Prerequisites that the student must meet are specified in his/her admission letter. If we have overlooked a course, or if a student feels he/she has met a prerequisite, but with a course for which the course name was not sufficiently descriptive, he/she can send us a course description and/or syllabus for further review.

  • A student can take all prerequisites through the Operations Management program; the tuition and technology fee charges and term schedule are the same as a graduate course.

  • A student can take an equivalent course at another accredited school, but should first provide the site coordinator with the course title and description for approval. (Except OMGT 4853)

  • A student can opt for one attempt to pass an on-line proficiency exam in lieu of the course.  Earning a grade of at least 70% on such an exam (the grade will not to be used in calculating the student’s MSOM GPA) will satisfy the respective prerequisite.

    • Immediately upon completion, the student is given the result.
