We appreciate your interest in our graduate business programs.
Our master's programs in business are flexible to the core. That's why we don't require the GMAT or GRE, and that's why we let you apply for admission in either the fall or winter semesters. If you're a part-time domestic student, we can even usually offer admission during the summer semester, too.
Domestic students should follow these simple steps to apply for graduate admission to the College of Business. International, guest, and newly-admitted graduate students should view the special information immediately below this section.
We conduct a holistic review of each application. There is no formula to define who will make a successful candidate, but we are especially interested in strong overall academic performance, strong quantitative skills, and a brief but clear statement of purpose. Admission is selective.

The MBA and MS programs are open to students of all undergraduate majors and all levels of work experience.
To be considered for admission, you must have successfully completed the following:
- The equivalent of a four-year US bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution.
- A grade of “C” or better in an undergraduate course in college algebra, finite math, pre-calculus, or calculus. (If you haven't yet met this requirement, we will work with you to complete an appropriate course either before or shortly after you have been admitted.)
Beginning with Winter 2024 applicants, the GMAT and GRE are optional for admission to all College of Business master's degree programs. No test required!
As part of our selective and holistic admission process, the graduate admissions committee may ask some applicants to submit GMAT or GRE scores if additional information is necessary to help demonstrate readiness to succeed in the master's program.
Fall semester (late August/September): August 1 (May 1 for international students)
Winter semester (January): December 1 (September 1 for international students)
Summer semester (May): April 1 (international students are not eligible for summer admission in the College of Business)
