Step 2: Waive Micro, Stats, and Finance Courses

Global EMPA students are automatically waived of CORE-GP 1020 Management and Leadership, if they wish to take any courses that note it as a prerequisite. Global EMPA students should not enroll in CORE-GP 1022 Intro to Public Policy since it is redundant with your core Global Public Policy course.

If you wish to take any upper-level courses that require CORE-GP 1011 Statistical Methods or CORE-GP 1018 Microeconomics, you may need to prove proficiency.

If you are eligible to waive a course, YOU SHOULD! And you should start the process right away by reading the waiver policies.

The deadline to submit written waiver requests is August 1.

If you don't qualify to waive out of statistics, microeconomics, or financial management, based on prior coursework, you can take a waiver exam in August. Please RSVP.
