Admission to the Master of Business Administration degree program is at the discretion of the Graduate Admission’s Committee of the College of Business Administration and the Dean of the Graduate School.
Decisions by the Graduate Admissions Committee are based on a broad range of criteria, and no particular level of academic performance or test scores will guarantee acceptance.
The following formula is used to determine a student's eligibility for admission, regular or conditional, for the Master of Business Administration:
For Regular Admission: A minimum formula score of 1000, calculated as follows: (Cumulative Undergraduate GPA * 200) + GMAT (min. 450) + Work Experience Factor.
For Conditional Admission: A minimum formula score of 1,050, calculated as follows: (Last 60 hours towards graduate/undergraduate degree * 200) + GMAT (min. 450) + Work Experience Factor.
The CBA Graduate Coordinator and CBA Graduate Admissions Committee will determine what constitutes as eligible and acceptable managerial work experience and will assign work experience factor points based on review of documented managerial work experience. A maximum of 50 points could be allocated for work experience.
In rare circumstances, applicants with documented extensive executive work experience not meeting minimum program admission requirements may appeal in writing to the CBA Graduate Admissions Committee through the CBA Graduate Coordinator for admission into the MBA program.
