Quantitative Requirement for MBA Program

Foundations of Quantitative Analysis

Admission to the UAB MBA Program requires that students have completed the equivalent of a pre-calculus course with a grade of "C" or better within the past five years.  If an applicant does not meet this requirement, they may be admitted with the contingency of satisfying the requirement during their first term of enrollment. We offer several options for satisfying this requirement.

Option one: Complete MA 105 "Pre-calculus Algebra" at UAB with a grade of "C" or better or complete a comparable course at another college or university and complete the course with at least a "C" grade.  A placement test or other prerequisites may be required for admission to MA 105.  You can call 934-2154 or visit the UAB Department of Mathematics (www.math.uab.edu ) for more information about taking MA 105 at UAB.

Option two
: Successfully complete the pre-calculus proficiency exam.  Currently enrolled students can take the exam at no cost online via Canvas. Students needing assistance in preparing for the test can use the material provided on Canvas in the Foundations of Quantitative Analysis Course shell.
