Applicants to the MBA are required to have earned a bachelor's degree or the equivalent and to achieve an acceptable score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or the GRE test. International students whose native language is not English are required to take the TOEFL exam (minimum score of 79) or the IELTS (minimum score of 6.5). Candidates with earned bachelor degrees with a minimum (GPA of 2.8) from US accredited institutions may waive the GMAT/GRE. Candidates with earned masters and PhD degrees from accredited US and Canada based institutions may also waive the GMAT/GRE requirement. We urge applicants who have been out of school for a while to prepare for the GMAT or GRE before sitting for the exam.
Additional requirements include one letter of recommendation, a personal statement, and resume.
A Word about the Undergraduate Degree
Applicants to the MBA program come from varied backgrounds. Many hold undergraduate degrees in management or in technical areas such as computer science or engineering while others hold degrees in the liberal arts.
In evaluating applicants to the program, we focus primarily on academic performance at the undergraduate level with much less emphasis placed on the discipline in which the degree was earned.
