BA 5687 may be waived based on prior academic or professional preparation. Students should consult with the Academic Director.
Two courses are required. Students should pursue a combination of electives that supports their educational and career goals. Note that in all cases, students are responsible for completing prerequisites. They are also encouraged to consult with the Academic Director or advisor when making their course selections. Alternate courses may be taken with permission from the Academic Director.
Permission from the Academic Director is required to enroll in BA 5685 Internship or Externship in Business as an elective. This permission, however, does not guarantee that the course will fulfill the capstone requirement. The Academic Director must grant a second permission for BA 5685 to count for the capstone.

For STAT 5651, a sponsoring corporation provides a problem and real data, and students divide into teams to work on the problem. At the end of the term, the top several groups as judged by professors present to the program's advisory board and other corporate judges.
