I think that different MS programs have different expectations in those
regards. One thing is for sure though....there WILL be a very steep learning
curve for the graduate classes based on the professors' assumption that
everyone has had prior exposure to the core fundamentals.

In MSCS program that I just graduated from, we had quite a few people who
tried to do the same thing (who knows why, but business folk REALLY like
doing that for some reason). At best, they had to take a butt-load of
undergrad classes to catch up and, at worst, they simply quit the program.
