Program Structure

All students are required to take a set of basic business courses, or prerequisites, prior to taking their core courses. Students must complete the set of basic business courses listed below, or submit transcripts from other schools that carry equivalent courses with a grade of "B" or better. We offer survey courses online in place of many undergraduate prerequisites, designed for non-business undergraduates.

If you would like a pre-application evaluation of your transcript and prerequisites, you can e-mail your transcript to Victoria Anderson at vanderson@business.msstate.edu. Please note that a pre-application evaluation does not imply acceptance into the program.

Current Students: You have online access to your own program of study through a tool called CAPP Compliances located under the My Banner Tab, Academic Records menu.

The MSU Online MBA requires six hours of electives on your program of study as well. The College of Business offers elective courses but other courses may be used.
