MBA Transition Program
National University students who completed a transition program as part of their undergraduate degree and who satisfy MBA transition program requirements described in the catalog description of various undergraduate programs must complete a minimum of 49.5 quarter units for their MBA degree. The number of units required for the MBA program is dependent on the coursework completed in the Bachelors transition program and the grades earned.
Basic English and Math Skills
It is strongly recommended that students who are unsure about having adequate English writing or math skills take one or both one-hour Accuplacer tests to determine their level of competency. If below the minimum level needed to be comfortable and ensure success in the MBA program, students should seriously consider enrolling in appropriate writing skill courses. If a student has already taken the GRE or GMAT, a score of at least of 480 (verbal) and 570 (quantitative) on the GRE or a score of at least 550 on the GMAT indicates adequate proficiency.
