Students that believe they have equivalent knowledge of K201 The Computer in Business material, may choose to take the K201 Waiver Exam. This Waiver exam is a two hour and thirty- minute exam that contains 135 questions total. The exams consist of hands-on exercises in Excel and Access, as well as Management Information Systems (MIS) topics covered by multiple choice questions. The goal of K201 is to utilize the learned technology skills to solve a variety of business problems. As of Spring 2020 we are using a skills assessment software called SAM 2019 (which simulates the Excel and Access 2019 environments) in addition to presenting the MIS content.
If you pass the equivalency exam you will be waived the requirement of taking K201. Waiving the requirement means you will not receive credit for the course, but will be able to choose another Business course instead, to meet the overall required credits for the Kelley School of Business (KSOB) major.
