General Graduate Admission Requirements

  • Apply online.
  • Pay the application fee.
  • Submit official transcripts to the Office of Graduate Admissions and unofficial transcripts to the Soules College of Business Graduate Advising Office.
  • Admission to the degree program is determined primarily on the basis of predictors of success in graduate study:
    • a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution,
    • grade point average computed on the last 60 undergraduate hours and
    • a satisfactory score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). In rare instances the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be accepted in lieu of the GMAT.
  • Submit official GMAT scores to the Office of Graduate Admissions and unofficial scores may be sent to the Soules College of Business Graduate Advising Office and directly to the program director.
  • Applicants with three or more years of extensive managerial work experience earned in the US or with a US governmental entity may request to have the GMAT requirement waived by the graduate coordinator. 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.

EMBA-HCM Applicants may request a GMAT waiver based on eligible managerial work experience.
