Master of Business Administration Admissions Criteria

Admission to the MBA Program is open to all prospective students with a Bachelor’s degree in any major; however, applicants must complete prerequisites in accounting, economics, statistics, finance, marketing, and management to qualify for admission to the MBA program. Students lacking the prerequisites may be granted conditional admission. The prerequisite courses may be taken simultaneously with regular MBA courses on the approval of the MBA Director. Upon completion of the prerequisite courses, students must reapply for full admission to the MBA program. Admission to the MBA program is a two-step process.
