*Master's Plus - Some M.S. in Management students may be required to take BUS500 and/or RES500 as part of their coursework if they do not have previous experience/an accredited degree in business courses and/or accounting, finance, or business statistics. In this case, these courses do not count toward the degree program.

**Students who do not have a previous degree from an accredited program must complete BUS500 before completing other program requirements. BUS500 may be taken concurrently with the first course in the program. Students must successfully pass BUS500 within three terms. Provisional students required to complete BUS500 are not required to take RES500 or RES501. Provisional students who have completed a prior degree from an accredited business program will complete RES500 or RES501, rather than BUS500.

*** Students with a background in accounting may substitute HRM515.
