Admission Requirements

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 
  • Completed the following prerequisite courses with a B- or higher: Accounting, Economics, Statistics, and Marketing Management. If you have not completed these courses we will work with you by providing free or discounted modules to make sure you are prepared for your MBA courses. 
  • Documentation of professional experience (Part-Time MBA program only). Submit a résumé to your admissions counselor to pre-qualify.

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

Due to the nature of the Full-Time MBA program, no transfer of previous coursework will be accepted.
