Applications for admission to the MBA Program are considered on a rolling basis, and those admitted may enroll in classes starting in August, October, January, March and May. Candidates for admission must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university as well as the interest, aptitude and ability to undertake graduate studies.
Every applicant's situation is individually evaluated based on prior academic performance, number of years and type of experience, other advanced degrees or graduate course work, and performance on GMAT testing (if submitted) and dates may improve their opportunity for admission by providing a GMAT score or by successfully completing additional foundational coursework.
Applicants with at least 3 years of substantial business or professional experience, an undergraduate GPA of 3.25 or successful completion of previous graduate work are given priority consideration.
Substantial professional experience, of at least 7 years, will be considered in applicants who fall below the GPA requirement.
Applicants with less than 7 years of substantial professional experience, and who fall below the admission criteria, should provide a GMAT score.
