(2) successful completion of the equivalent course at the undergraduate level as a post-graduate,
(3) a satisfactory score on a CLEP or Challenge Exam (see below), or
(4) successful completion of the courses (MBA 550-556) in the program.
The MBA Director or a designee will determine if any of the Foundations requirements will be waived based on the candidate’s prior education.

CLEP and Challenge Exams
Any student seeking waiver of a Foundations Course on the basis of a College Level Equivalency Program (CLEP) or Challenge Exam must have the results of such exam reported to the MBA Director before enrolling in any MBA course requiring the course as a prerequisite. Challenge Exams are administered by the Assumption faculty (Fee = $75).
