A decision will be emailed within 14 days.

The MBA Program requires that all students take foundation coursework in Accounting and Finance prior to enrolling in the core MBA Accounting and Finance courses. These two foundation classes are taught by Elon MBA faculty and are designed specifically to prepare students for the Elon core MBA classes.
Students are not required to complete these foundation courses before they can enroll in the regular MBA classes. You may take any classes that do not require accounting or finance as prerequisites.
Students who have prior coursework in finance and accounting are eligible to take placement exams which, if passed, will enable the student to exempt this requirement. The assessment exams are available in both accounting and finance.
