Unlike most of the MS degree programs, which have specific elective requirements, the MS MAS degree program allows students to choose their own course of study, pulling courses from the Jindal School of Management graduate catalog to satisfy elective requirements. The goal of the program is to help students acquire principles and techniques needed to develop creative solutions in a changing business environment, and contribute quickly to company success within their area of specialization.
The Naveen Jindal School of Management requires only one prerequisite for the MS in Management and Administrative Sciences program which is business calculus or its equivalent. Students who have not satisfied this requirement may be admitted but will need to satisfy the prerequisite within the first semester of UT Dallas class work, by taking OPRE 6303 (Quantitative Foundations of Business). Degree credit is not earned for program prerequisites, although all grades earned in graduate courses impact the cumulative GPA.
