Candidates with an undergraduate degree in any field with work experience who seek advanced business expertise as a springboard to their career are encouraged to apply.

Admission Requirements

The MBA Admissions Committee welcomes applications from individuals with a bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree) from an accredited institution. Acceptance is based upon an evaluation of all credentials presented by the applicant.

The following is a list of the required conditions as well as the required documents for your application for admission.

  • Completed application for admission submitted through BusinessCAS
  • A baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution
    • Official academic transcripts from all previously attended post-secondary institutions must be submitted directly to BusinessCAS.
    • Academic transcripts from institutions outside of the United States must be verified by an approved international credentialing evaluation service such as World Education Services to confirm degree equivalency and GPA calculation.
  • A current resume is required and for the Full-Time MBA, at least two years of full-time experience prior to enrollment is recommended. For dual-degree applicants, experience gained through internships, projects, and leadership roles may be considered.
  • Personal statement (up to 600 words) and a short-essay response to the program-related question in BusinessCAS
  • A letter of recommendation (up to three allowed). Recommender contact(s) may be submitted through the BusinessCAS portal within the Program Materials section of the application.

  • TOEFL or IELTS score report – A valid score (less than 2 years old) is required as proof of English proficiency for international applicants who did not receive a degree in the United States or a foreign country where English is the primary language. The following minimum score is required for admission to a graduate business degree program.

We encourage candidates to upload unofficial transcripts and test scores with their BusinessCAS application in order to expedite the review of their file while official documents are processed.

Admission interviews are a requirement of the Full-Time MBA application process for those candidates who meet the program requirements and will be conducted by invitation only after a complete application has been reviewed. Most interviews are conducted with candidates by online platform or in- person.
