MBA Admission Requirements

A bachelor's degree or its equivalent with a GPA of 2.7 (B-) or better on a 4.0 scale is required for admission to the MBA program. Conditional admission to the program may be granted by the Provost to applicants with a GPA between 2.0 and 2.6, and is based on the students' personal statement, letters of recommendation, and detailed review of his/her prior academic transcripts. Applicants with GPA 2.5 and 2.6 who receive the conditional admission are required to achieve a GPA of at least 3.0 in the first nine units of work in the MBA program. A student achieving this academic record will have the conditional status removed. Otherwise, the student is subject to dismissal after the first term of enrollment. Applicants with a GPA in a range of 2.0 - 2.4 will be considered for admission to the regular graduate status after completing courses necessary to improve their GPA. A minimum of nine units of undergraduate or graduate level foundation courses with a GPA of 3.2 or better is required. Based on extra curriculum academic results, the Provost may grant a student the regular graduate status before achievement of the GPA requirement. In support, the student may submit letters of recommendation, GMAT or GRE scores, summary of work experience, research projects, or publications.
