MST Background Studies
Candidates must have a base of underlying knowledge relevant to business. For the MST program, background work must be in accounting and economics and in at least 4 of the following subjects: legal environment, computers and information systems, marketing, finance, and statistics. Background work may be completed at the undergraduate or graduate level. Courses taken to fulfill background studies are not counted as part of the 33-hour requirement for the MST degree. Most individuals will have completed some or all of the courses in their undergraduate programs that fulfill the background studies requirements.
To ensure integrity of background studies, courses meeting the requirements must be taken at regionally-accredited, four-year college or university within five years and have earned a minimum grade of B. Students not meeting these criteria may be required to complete additional comparable background work. A candidate may complete the special accelerated 500 level course(s) offered by the Seidman College in the relevant area(s); complete appropriate courses in the undergraduate program at Grand Valley State University or any other regionally-accredited, college or university, or pass one or more qualifying examinations after appropriate study. Questions should be addressed to the graduate business programs director.
