Prerequisites & Background Coursework

The UNT MBA programs have the following background courses:

  • Micro and Macro Economics
  • Financial Accounting
  • Business Law
  • Calculus

Students are not required to have these background courses before applying. Once admitted, our team will evaluate student’s transcripts and notify them of background content not reflected as completed courses. If required to complete content, students may do so through our third party partners, Ivy Software and/or Responsive.net. We will provide login credentials once admitted. Students will complete the content as modules, which can be completed in about 2 to 4 hours per “course” in general. The cost ranges between $48.00 and $75.00 per module. If a student is required to take all modules, the cost will be just under $350.00. The time commitment would likely be 10 to 24 hours, depending on the student. Students have three chances to “pass” each module with roughly an 80%, and the grade is not reflected on the transcript.
