We appreciate your interest in our graduate business programs.

Our programs are built with flexibility in mind. That's why we allow part-time students to apply for graduate admission to the College of Business year-round, including the fall, winter, and summer semesters.  

Full-time students will find course availability greatest during the fall and winter semesters, but we can sometimes accommodate full-time summer admission, too.

Admission Process

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 evidence of strong academic performance and a brief but clear statement of purpose. Admission is competitive.

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.)
  • GMAT or GRE test within the previous 5 years. Applicants with three years of professional work experience, a degree in business or engineering, or other credentials may be eligible to waive the GMAT and GRE. View the GMAT/GRE waiver policy in detail.
