Pre-MBA Program

Are you unsure if you want to enroll in an MBA program?

The Fordham Pre-MBA is a “preview” that will help you make an educated decision.

This benefits you because you can give the Fordham MBA a test-run;  if you decide to continue on for your MBA, you have a head start; and you can take MBA courses without having yet taken the GMAT.

You get a chance to show Fordham professors and administrators what you can do, too—an advantage that can help you later in the admissions process.

Please note that Pre-MBA students may take only the three prerequisite classes specified and may only enroll for two consecutive trimesters. Participation does not guarantee admission to the MBA or any other Fordham graduate business program. The courses available to Pre-MBA students are:

  • ACGB 6111 Fundamentals of Accounting 1 (offered in spring and summer)
  • DGGB 6820 STATISTICS (offered in spring and summer)
  • BEGB 6220 ECON ANALYSIS & BUS DECISIONS (offered in fall and spring)

If Pre-MBA students decide they want to be considered for a degree program, they must go through the regular admissions process. If they are admitted, any applicable Pre-MBA courses they’ve completed will count toward their program of study and overall GPA.

Pre-MBA is only available to for domestic students. International students interested in prep business programs should see information for the International Business Bridge.
