The stem classes serve as prerequisites for the graduate business courses and are required for students who did not take the equivalent courses as part of their baccalaureate program or for students with a baccalaureate degree from a non-U.S. university. CLEP and validation exams are available for students who wish to test out of any or all of the stem requirements. The graduate stem courses (5300s) do not apply to the 36-hour graduate credit hour requirement of the MBA degree.
