Curriculum Changes (Pre-FY21)

The MBE Department takes action to continuously improve its program through appropriate changes to its curriculum. A full list of active curriculum changes is shown below. Please make sure you are aware of curriculum changes and are adjusting your course plan as appropriate; these changes apply to all students, regardless of Catalog Year.

Definitions

Effective Date – The effective date reflects the semester in which the curriculum change is official and published in the Undergraduate Catalog. Students are encouraged to align their degree plan to the updated curriculum requirement as close to the effective date as possible, regardless of the catalog year for their degree plan.

Enforced Date – The enforced date reflects the semester that the curriculum change will be enforced with no exceptions granted. The enforced date occurs after a pre-defined implementation period (typically 3 semesters) which allows students the opportunity to adjust their course plans to accommodate the curriculum changes.
