The College of Business will once again hold their MBA Foundation Workshops in August. These workshops are geared to prepare incoming MBA students, graduate students, or working professionals with the basic knowledge of the business core subject areas, including accounting, finance, statistics/spreadsheet/information systems, and general MBA study and research. 

The four workshops are scheduled for August 6-10 and 13-17. Each workshop is 3 hours per day for 5 days, separated into morning and afternoon sessions. Completion of these workshops, along with passing of a final examination, serves as the pre-requisites required to begin the MBA program for those students without a business undergraduate degree. Graduate students from other academic programs or working professionals will receive a Certificate in Business Fundamentals upon completion of the workshops and tests.
