The courses comprising the foundation of the MBA Program provide students lacking background in specific areas with a solid base of theoretical and practical knowledge. Students who have gained foundation knowledge at the undergraduate level at SIUC or elsewhere may request that their undergraduate record be evaluated to determine if MBA foundation requirements have been satisfied. Proficiency examinations are available in several of the foundation areas; some are available only certain times of the year. Contact Testing Services for more details.
