Accounting Primer Details
Kelley Direct requires students be adequately prepared in accounting prior to enrolling in Kelley Direct MBA or MS degree programs. However, we recognize students might apply and be admitted into a Kelley Direct degree program without enrolling in course work that satisfies the accounting prerequisite. Kelley Direct also recognizes that a person's skills in this area might have eroded over time.
Kelley Direct has developed a primer course in accounting for students needing additional instruction in this area prior to enrolling in a Kelley Direct MBA or MS degree program:
- The Kelley Direct primer course is designed specifically to cover material and develop skills students should already possess when they begin a Kelley Direct degree program. Admitted students who have not already made arrangements to improve their understanding and application of accounting will be required to take the Kelley Direct primer course.
- The Kelley Direct primer course is self-paced. There is no final examination at the end of the primer unless proof of completion is required for reimbursement purposes. A student cannot "fail" the primer. The purpose of the primer is to ensure a student has the opportunity to learn the material needed and develop the skills required when the student begins a Kelley Direct program.
- The accounting primer should be completed prior to taking C521 Accounting. Although the primer is self-paced, you should enroll as soon as possible.
Voluntary Enrollment in Accounting Primer Course
Finally, some students might voluntarily wish to enroll in the primer course to ensure that they are prepared in accounting prior to enrolling in their degree program. Students interested in this option should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
