Applicants should have earned a bachelor's degree. Applications are carefully evaluated based primarily on the following factors: Quality of undergraduate degree program, undergraduate grade point average, Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) score**, and relevant work experience. Meeting minimum expectations for each factor does not guarantee admission. Offers of admission will be based in part on program capacity considerations. Typically, we require a 2.7 minimum undergraduate GPA and a minimum GMAT score of a 470 and a 4.0 Analytical Writing Assessment score.

Waiver of GMAT Requirement:

Applicants who have earned graduate degrees (e.g., law, medicine, engineering, pharmacy, business) from accredited programs may not be required to take the GMAT. Similarly, the GMAT may not be required for those with a bachelor’s degree from an AACSB-accredited business program and an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher. Please contact the Director of Graduate Business Programs for more information.

Application Deadlines:

Applications are accepted throughout the year. Deadlines for consideration of admission for each semester are outlined below*.

Desired Starting Semester Recommended Postmark Deadline Final Postmark Deadline
Fall June 15 July 20
Spring October 31 November 30
Summer March 31 April 15

Typically, admissions decisions will be communicated to applicants within 3 weeks of the deadline. Complete applications received by the recommended deadline will be considered for admission, denial or deferral of the admission decision until the second/final review of applications. Complete applications received after the recommended deadline but on or before the final deadline date will be handled in the final review of applications (subject to program capacity). Decisions at this stage will either be admission, denial or deferral for consideration of admission in the following semester (or summer term). An application is considered complete when:

  1. applicants have submitted a completed application form with application fee and essay and
  2. additional supporting materials (GMAT**, official transcripts, etc.) have been received.

* Additional processing time may be necessary for international student applications. Official transcripts from international educational institutions often require additional evaluation.
** Typically, international applicants will also be required to submit TOEFL scores.

Admissions decisions are final. An applicant who is deferred to the following semester will automatically be considered in the set of Recommended Deadline applications for that semester. Applicants who are denied admission may apply for consideration for a later semester by submitting updated application materials.

Starting Semester:

Students who are granted admission into a graduate business program are expected to start during the stated desired starting semester. Any student not starting coursework during that semester must communicate with the Director of Graduate Programs to maintain their admission status into the next semester.

Transfer Course Work:

Applicants may request a review of previous graduate transcripts for consideration of transfer credit within the 36 credit hour graduate program (generally up to 6 credit hours). Factors such as graduate program accreditation, course relevance to business administration or strategic finance, grade earned [at least a B (3.0)], and length of time since course completion will be considered. This review should be conducted at the time of admission into the graduate business program. The final disposition of all transfer coursework is coordinated and determined by the Director.
