    It depends entirely on the student and the major they are coming from--and the wharton class they're taking. As an IR major, I had no trouble acing MGMT classes, but I don't think I'd fare nearly as well in a finance course, where I have no natural aptitude and would have skipped several prereqs that Wharton students would have taken.

    Conversely, a math or physics major might do very well in finance while sucking at the MGMT courses.
