Application Requirements

  1. Graduate Studies Application
  2. Application Fee
  3. Official transcript from the baccalaureate degree granting institution
  4. To be considered you must have a 2.75 GPA in which case no GMAT score is required, or you must meet one of the following formulas:

    200 X (overall GPA) + (GMAT score) > 1100

    200 X (advanced hours GPA) + (GMAT score) > 1150

  5. Students without a baccalaureate degree in business must have at least three years work experience in a banking or regulatory position. This experience negates the requirement for stem work as required in the conventional MBA.

NOTE: Applicants who meet all other qualifications but whose combined score using the formulas is less than 1100 but greater than 950 (or less than 1150 but greater than 1000 on advanced hours) will be invited to submit additional supporting information.
