Transfer Credit and Course Exemptions
Transfer credit for up to two graduate courses can be applied to the program, potentially reducing the amount of program course work at the University of Michigan-Dearborn to 24 credit hours. Transfer credit is granted at the discretion of the program faculty.
Undergraduate coursework deemed substantially similar to program courses may qualify to exempt students from taking up to two courses. Course exemptions are granted based on the judgment of the program faculty and are limited to the following courses: ACC 505, BE 530, DS 520, MIS 525, MKT 515, FIN 531 and OM 521. Exempted courses must be replaced with another approved course in the College of Business. Students receiving transfer credit will have exemptions limited so that no more than two courses are affected in total.
