7.4 MASTER'S DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
 
7.4.1 Admission Requirements
Master's degrees offered through the Manderson Graduate School of Business reflect a diverse range of missions and objectives. Enrollment in all master's programs is limited and competitive. Admissions are supervised by committees of the graduate faculty in each of the academic programs. The minimum admission requirements are (a) admission to the Graduate School of The University of Alabama, (b) an acceptable score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) and (c) completion of an appropriate undergraduate degree. A particular master's program may establish higher standards and/or specific prerequisites for admission. Further information about the requirements for admission to master's programs is included in the section of this catalog pertaining to each specific master's degree and major field or curriculum. Also, students are encouraged to visit the Manderson Graduate School web site and the Graduate Catalog's section on admission criteria for current information about degree programs.

7.4.2 Degree Requirements
Graduate students must meet all the degree requirements of The University of Alabama Graduate School pertaining to the master's degree. Exceptions to the requirements for the master's degree may be made only with the approval of the faculty coordinator of the specific degree program, or the director of graduate studies, and the dean of the Graduate School.

7.4.3 Second Degree Requirements
A student may concurrently pursue two master's degree programs when such a combination is consistent with the student's career and educational objectives. A maximum of six semester hours of eligible credits earned toward one master's degree may be applied to the requirements for a second master's degree. Accordingly, a student who is interested in combined programs is advised to meet with the faculty coordinator of each degree program before enrolling, since careful planning is required to achieve a successful combination of two degrees.
