Waive MBA Requirements through Our MBA Foundation Examinations

Our restructured MBA program makes attaining your graduate business degree more accessible than ever before. You may now be able to earn your Excelsior MBA with as few as 33 credits by waiving up to 15 credits of foundation requirements through our graduate-level challenge exams.
