Admission Requirements

  • 3.5 GPA in KSU Coursework 
  • Minimum of 30-credit hours completed toward IHS major


If there is room in your free electives, we encourage IHS majors to complete

ACCT 2100:  Financial Accounting
ACCT 2200:  Managerial Accounting
FIN 3100:  Principles of Finance
ECON 2300:  Business Statistics or STAT 1401 for Area D Math

These courses are foundational courses for the MBA program.  If, for example, the student’s core curriculum includes another statistics course, the student would meet the foundation requirement for statistics and would not ordinarily need to take ECON 2300.  If, however, there is no room in the undergraduate curriculum to satisfy foundation knowledge, the MBA program offers online foundation skills courses for those students entering the MBA Program who have not had this coursework in the past.  Once the student is accepted into the MBA Program, you will be informed of any needed skill requirements.  Each foundation module will cost the student $200.
