How to Apply

  1. Complete online application (expires after one academic year from admission term)
  2. Submit transcripts for all collegiate work completed;
  3. Submit GMAT/GRE scores (no more than 5 years old); (GMAT/GRE is not required to begin MBA foundation coursework)
  4. $50 MBA application fee, in addition to $75 graduate studies application fee; and
  5. Statement of intent demonstrating a level of knowledge and intellectual maturity appropriate to the MBA.  Your statement should cover the following questions:

    2. What do you intend to do with it?
    3. Why do you think you are ready for the rigors of graduate school?

If you hold a non-business undergraduate degree

If you do not have an undergraduate business degree admission can be gained after completing all or a portion of the MBA Foundation Courses. The complete program is 32 credits designed to be taken two courses at a time for one year, including summer. However, for fulltime students this may be accelerated.

If you are in need of completing any of the foundation coursework you should still apply directly to the graduate MBA program. Your undergraduate transcripts will be evaluated and you will be notified of any necessary foundation course requirements.  Providing the GMAT test score is not required until you are ready to begin the graduate MBA coursework.
