Admission Requirements

  • General Requirements

    • A Bachelor’s Degree in any discipline from an accredited college or university
    • A GMAT score (this requirement is waived for students with an undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or higher). If a student has a GPA less than 3.2 they also have the option of being admitted as a “Provisional” student that requires that the student complete three of four 500 level classes with a minimum of a “B” in each class. The courses include GMBA 501, GMBA, 521, GMBA 525, and GMBA 561. If a student has waived all 500 level courses, then it is required that the student complete GMBA 601, GMBA 641, and GMBA 661 with a grade not less than a “B” in each class. Any student not meeting the minimum grade of a “B” in each class will not be permitted to register for any further MBA classes. Students can thus be admitted by either earning an acceptable GMAT score or successfully completing the identified courses as a “”Provisional” student with a minimum grade of “B” in each course within two consecutive semesters.
    • A completed application for admission
    • A completed resume
    • Official transcripts from all prior institutions
    • Three letters of recommendation
    • TOEFL scores if English is not a first language

    Degree Status is awarded to students whose undergraduate grade point average was 3.2 or higher or who score at least 1050 using the following formula: 200 x (Undergraduate GPA) + GMAT Score 

    Provisional Academic Status may be awarded at the discretion of the Director of Graduate Programs to students who show academic promise but do not achieve 1050 on the formula above. These students may petition for Degree status after completion of 9 credits with a minimum of 3.0 GPA.

    Non-Degree Status is awarded to students who, in the opinion of the admissions committee, show academic promise and are seeking professional development. A maximum of 9 credits may be taken as a non-degree student.
