First-time GSIs are required to take MBA 375 so if you are selected as a GSI, you will eventually need to register for it, but you don’t need to bid for the course during Bidding. The course is also independent of your MBA electives so you do not need to factor it into your bidding strategy. The 0.5 units of MBA 375 will also not count toward your unit graduation requirement.
On the Elective Schedule (Google Sheet), you will see a colum labeled Applied Innovation. Applied Innovation will be noted in the column next to the course that would count toward the AI requirement.
The Full-Time MBA Program considers 8 units as “full time” status. The 8 units can be a combination of Haas and non-Haas units. Remember that you will need a total of 51 valid units to graduate. If you need to discuss your academic plans and how many units you should consider each semester, please connect with your academic advisor.
The exception applies to students who are receiving financial awards, such as Veterans Benefits, working as a GSI or GSR, or fellowships with specific unit requirements. Students who fall into these categories must enroll in at least 12 units to be considered full-time. Please check with your appropriate advisor/coordinator to confirm the minimum number of units you need to take to maintain your status.
Yes, you can. Check out our Enrolling/Unenrolling in Non-MBA Classes instruction for more details.
Review the MBA Academic Calendar for the upcoming semester’s important dates.
After Bidding concludes, enrollment will be frozen until Add/Drop. Students can add or drop eligible classes when the Add/Drop period opens.
Students will not be able to drop from “No Add/Drop courses” so make sure you are able to fully commit to the course before enrolling in it. These courses will not be available for enrollment in the Add/Drop process. The courses are also not eligible for grading option changes to S/U. Students who do not follow through with their original commitment to the class and choose to stop attending will receive a letter grade of “F” in the class.
Review our guideline and schedule a meeting with your academic advisor if you have any questions.
There is a separate application process that takes place outside of the Bidding process. Review this guideline for more information and timeline.
