The Executive MBA Program operates on a modified pass/fail grading scheme. This grading system is based on proficiency and intentionally designed for an executive-level program. The system does not readily translate into a traditional grading system (e.g. A-F, GPA) but includes a range of grades that reward excellence and proficiency and can also indicate the need for increased performance. Examples: Pass with Distinction, High Pass, Low Pass, and others.
