Program Prerequisites


Students must have completed an undergraduate degree in business or have completed courses in financial accounting, managerial accounting, fundamentals of economics, and business statistics. If you need to satisfy the business prerequisite courses, Cedarville's Center for Lifelong Learning provides non-credit options for completing the prerequisite courses online.


In addition, students must have completed a minor in Bible or have taken course work adequate to meet the outcomes of BEGS-5110 Bible Survey for Professionals and BEGS-5120 Foundations of Biblical Theology. Students who have not met this requirement, as determined by the Office of the Registrar, must enroll in BEGS-5110 and/or BEGS-5120 before or concurrent with the first two courses. If you need to satisfy the Bible prerequisite, view the general study/non-degree courses or register for classes.

Program prerequisites may be taken from Cedarville University or from another regionally accredited institution.
