Core graduate courses are taught at a level that requires entering students to have successfully completed courses in intermediate microeconomic and macroeconomic theory, calculus, matrix algebra, and statistics. Students who have not completed the prerequisite material, but who have apparent potential for graduate study, may be admitted to the program on a provisional basis. A math review course is offered prior to Fall semester each year for all incoming graduate students.
Students are required to maintain a 3.0 grade point average overall in their core courses and the courses in their graduate program. Failure to meet these requirements, as well as receipt of more than one grade less than a "B-" in the core courses will be grounds for termination.
