Entry Requirements

Any applicant who holds a bachelor's degree, or equivalent, from an accredited college or university will be considered for admission regardless of the undergraduate field of study. An applicant for admission should understand that graduate work is not merely an extension of undergraduate work. Graduate study operates at a significantly higher level of rigor, demands scholarship of a higher order, and places more emphasis on research and student responsibility.

Once the admission requirements of the Graduate School have been met, the Admissions Committee will grant admission only to those individuals who demonstrate significant accomplishment and/or high potential for success. The decision of the Admissions Committee is normally based on a combination of the applicant's previous academic record and the applicant's score on the Graduate Admissions Test (GMAT). For consideration, the GMAT score must be no more than five years old. Also, significant business experience may serve as an indicator of an individual's ability to complete the program, thus may be considered by the Committee.
