Pursuing an MBA?

You do not need a BS in business to pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA); a bachelor’s degree in any field will be fine. However, if you don’t have a BS in business, you may want to prepare yourself for an MBA program by taking a few key courses. You should also prepare for the GMAT (the Graduate Management Admissions Test), the entrance exam required for most graduate business schools. See MBA Program PDF below for more information.
