    Actually seems like it could work out pretty well, but one part of the article confused me:

    Leveling coursework may be required depending on a student’s transcript and must be completed before taking additional courses. Two online courses may be taken before completion of the GMAT.
    I understand the first sentence, but the second one is a bit odd. Is this implying that students can take the GMAT AFTER they have been accepted, enrolled, and have taken two classes? Seems like a bit odd of a progression to me.

    If a student does well in the first two courses, but then fails the GMAT, they are still accepted into the program, based on their good performance in the successfully completed classes. It's done elsewhere too.

    If that's accurate, then what's the point of taking the GMAT after successfully completing two classes?

    I think you can only progress in the program if you do well in those two courses. If you barely squeak by, that's probably the death knell.

    1. On the one hand, the program can advertise that they require the GMAT for admission. That increases the appearance of academic rigor (and prestige), as well as increasing the statistical probability that applicants will be able to successfully complete the entire degree program.

    2. On the other hand, by allowing students who scored too low on the GMAT to enter the program (but who otherwise successfully passed the first two class with a B or higher), it allows:
    a) more students into the program
    b) increases the perceived popularity of the program
    c) increases the revenue stream.

    There are a lot of interesting variables that a department chair or dean may consider in this age of increasing competition for qualified students.

    So I'm assuming that the two classes have to be the leveling coursework and not from the program core?

    Also, it would seem a bit counter productive for the program to admit a student who kills the first two classes, but then bombs the GMAT and is subsequently dismissed from the program. If anything, this is actually more of a detriment to the student who is out the tuition and time that it took to complete those courses.
