GPA under 3.0? There's another way to get started.

If your undergrad GPA is below the 3.0 minimum for the master's, apply to the certificate program instead. After you've completed 12 certificate credit hours (four classes), the university lets you use the grades earned in your Business Analytics certificate courses to meet the GPA requirement for the master's program.
