Specific courses may be waived based on a case-by-case evaluation of undergraduate or graduate course work in business completed at a regionally accredited college or university within the last 10 years.

B. Foreign Language Competency

Prior to graduation, students must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language (other than English). This is accomplished through completion of three semesters of college-level course work in a single foreign language with a grade of C or better in all three terms or by passing a proficiency exam.
