We get it - you’re busy! That’s why we strive to make the admissions process as straightforward and simple as possible. We value your time and don’t require that you fill out numerous forms to apply.

Before applying, be sure you fulfill the following requirements. You must have: 

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college/university with a minimum 3.0 GPA 
  • Documentation of professional experience. 

Note: There is no GMAT required. We think you’re so much more than a test.

Haven't taken a business class before? No problem! We value your background and experiences, and are excited about what you can bring to the program. To provide some foundational knowledge of business concepts - such as accounting, economics, and statistics - we have free or discounted online learning modules to catch you up to speed.
