To qualify for admission to the M.B.A. program, a person must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university. This degree may be in business or another field. Admission is determined by a combination of criteria:
- Completion of the application materials, including an essay statement about career interests
- Official undergraduate transcript(s)
- Attainment of at least 1,000 on the M.B.A. Admissions Index (A.I.)
- A.I. is determined as follows: AI = 200 x composite undergraduate G.P.A. + G.M.A.T. score.
- Applicants holding a graduate degree from an appropriately accredited college or university are exempted from the G.M.A.T. requirement.
- Applicants holding an undergraduate degree from an AACSB accredited college or university with a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.75 or higher, are exempted from the G.M.A.T. requirement.
- Applicants attaining a 950-999 A.I. may be admitted to the M.B.A. program on academic probation. If admitted on academic probation, the student has 9 credit hours to obtain a 3.0 G.P.A., failure to do so will result in immediate dismissal from the program.
