Emphasis in the last two semesters (BADM 683 and 684) is on the integration of these concepts and methods into the organization's policy formulation and strategic planning process. Personal productivity software is an integral part of the curriculum and is used as a management tool.
A student must achieve a minimum of 2.5 grade-point average after the first semester to begin the second semester. A grade-point average of at least 2.75 is required after the second semester to continue the program.
