Admission to the MBA program is open to all qualified individuals holding a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in the United States or from a recognized academic institution in another country. To be considered for admission, applicants must meet the following minimum requirements:
- GMAT score of 500 or higher (unless waived) taken within the last 5 years*; AND
- Undergraduate GPA of 2.5 or higher in upper level degree seeking coursework; AND
- Total score of 1100 or higher using the following formula:
(200 X GPA in upper level degree seeking coursework) + GMAT score
e.g., GPA = 2.80, GMAT = 570
(200 X 2.80) + 570 = 1130
*If an applicant has previously taken the GRE or chooses to take the GRE instead of the GMAT, the GRE score will be converted to a GMAT score using the GRE Comparison Tool for Business Schools provided by Educational Testing Services. The equivalent GMAT score will then be used during the application review process.
The Kate Tiedemann College of Business reviews every application to the MBA and will make exceptions to these minimum requirements when warranted on a case by case basis. If a candidate’s application makes it through the first round of review, he/she will be asked to participate in a phone interview before the college makes an official admissions recommendation.
