MBA Knowledge Requirements

Students entering into the program will likely come from a variety of backgrounds. Those students who do not meet certain requirements in the business administration area may be required to take additional knowledge support courses. These courses may also be recommended for students wishing to refresh their knowledge or reinforce what they have gained through experience. The DSU knowledge courses are included in the individual’s program of study if they are required of the student.

The knowledge requirements can be met in a variety ways:

  • an undergraduate degree in business administration with a cumulate GPA ≥ 3.0.,
  • two years of professional employment plus transcripts from an undergraduate or graduate degree with a GPA ≥ 3.0; or
  • a combination of an undergraduate degree and GMAT/GRE scores.

Students who have not had appropriate coursework or acceptable experience to meet the knowledge requirements will be admitted to the program if they meet the other minimum requirements. However, these students will be required to meet the knowledge requirements by satisfactorily completing the specified knowledge support courses as part of their program of study.

Students have the option to take the knowledge courses at DSU or complete the requirements via the Peregrine Academic Leveling Courses (ALC) system, students have the flexibility to complete these modules at their own pace. The self-paced modules include an examination to ensure that students have mastered the contents of the modules. The self-study modules allows for tracking student completion of the modules. Students interact directly with Peregrine to purchase and take the required ALC modules and complete an exam at their pace. Peregrine exam services are approved by ACBSP accreditation.
