Transferring credits question


fatrial

I want to go ahead and start on my MBA coursework through an accredited online program in the fall (2 or 3 of the basic core classes like accounting or operations) and then transfer to a bigger university in the spring. I cant go straight to a campus univeristy until january because of moving issues. I was wondering if most programs accept transfer credits and if this sounds like a viable option.
Thanks!

No. I can't think of any accredited campus university that will accept MBA credits from another institution.

Each school has a different transfer policy. Do you have an idea of which school you would like to attend in the Spring?

I work in the admissions office at Rutgers Business School and we will accept transfer credits from another MBA program. However, we will only accept 6 credits and they have to be from another AACSB accredited institution. You must keep in mind that if you are looking to go full-time, most full-time programs start in the Fall semester so this might be another hurdle that you will need to research.

My pleasure Duncan. A lot of AACSB MBA programs have similar core courses so they will accept transfer credits, but only a certain amount, and I don't know of any that accept elective credits (only core).

Our new building is great and our students really enjoy it. Rutgers is also renovating a 1920s building 2 down from the new business school building into a new graduate dorm!

Like Stephan mentioned, some schools do allow credit transfers similar to how Rutgers does it. Kellogg, for example, allows you to transfer up to four AACSB accredited courses (as long as you received a "B" grade or higher. Tippie also accepts up to nine semester hours from another AACSB-accredited institution (again, "B" grade or higher.")

But other schools like MIT Sloan don't allow any transfers at all.
