Admissions Standards

Qualifications for applying to a Graduate Business Program

The GMAT is not required for admission to the MBA, Master of Accounting, Master of Science in Information Systems & Technology, Master of Science in Cybersecurity, Master of Science in Supply Chain Analytics or our graduate certificate programs. 

The admission standards for all Graduate Business Programs (master programs and graduate certificates) are the same. To be eligible to apply, an applicant must hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university and show high promise of academic success.

Graduate Business Programs take a holistic approach when evaluating student applications. Grade point average (GPA) and professional experience are considered when making an admissions decision.

Applicants with a 3.0 GPA or higher (on a 4.0 scale) qualify for regular admission. Students may be admitted on a restricted status if their GPA is slightly below 3.0. For questions or concerns, please contact us.
