Application Instructions

Admission Requirements

Provisional Admission: Yes; One provisional semester is offered to all students (regardless of their undergraduate GPA – there is no minimum) upon receipt of their admission application and unofficial transcript.

Full Admission: Full admission is granted based on receipt of all required documents (official transcript with graduation date) and meeting the index of 1000. (60 hr. upper-division undergrad GPA x 200 + total GMAT score => 1000).

Official Transcripts: Yes; showing proof of bachelor's degree from an accredited university (or its equivalent as determined from an approved credentialing agency).

Test Score Required: Yes, GMAT is required unless last 60 upper-division undergraduate hour GPA is 3.25 or above. Applicants who earned a prior graduate degree may request a waiver of the GMAT. In rare instances the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be accepted in lieu of the GMAT.

Applicants with three or more years of extensive managerial work experience (earned in the U.S. or with a U.S. government entity) and who have a minimum 3.0 GPA on the last 60 upper-division undergraduate GPA may request to have the GMAT requirement waived by the Program Advisor. This decision is made on a case-by-case basis; "extensive managerial experience" will typically mean a full-time supervisory or managerial position held for a significant period of time after completing the bachelor's degree as demonstrated with a resume. Applicants for the Executive MBA Healthcare Management Program (EMBA HCM) are required to have 3 or more years of managerial work experience. Such experience is evaluated by the Program to waive the GMAT requirement for EMBA HCM applicants.

Additional requirements for applicants with bachelor’s degrees from foreign institutions include Proof of English Proficiency and an International Transcript Evaluation as outlined here.

Letters of Recommendation: No

Resume/Curriculum Vitae: Yes

Admissions Essay: No

Deadlines: University deadlines apply. Summer admission is not offered to international applicants.

Career Outlook: As the economy slowly recovers, career prospects for MBA graduates are improving with encouraging signs for those seeking positions in core management positions.
