3-month foundation term

For students with a non-business undergraduate degree, the 2-Year Plus Foundation Term program is a powerful opportunity to climb into leadership roles by pairing their previous studies with robust business and accounting capabilities. This 27-month program requires students to complete a 3-month foundation term to ensure they have a solid introduction to the topics covered in the program. To be eligible for the Two Year MMPA without needing to complete the 3-month Foundation Term, students must achieve Advanced Standing. Please see advanced standing details below.
