The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is a graduate professional program that emphasizes breadth of preparation in the various competencies required of business executives. The MBA program is ideally suited not only for individuals with undergraduate degrees in business, but also for individuals with undergraduate degrees in other fields who have career goals that demand the competitive edge of quality graduate education in managerial decision-making.
The applicant to the master of business administration program must have a bachelor’s degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Applicants who are graduates of non-business programs are also encouraged to apply. An applicant is assigned an advisor soon after acceptance into the MBA program, and should meet with the advisor to prepare a program plan outlining the courses needed for the MBA degree.
The admissions decision is based on a review of the application documentation including work experience, academic performance, references and written statement of purpose. Although taking the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a requirement, it is highly recommended for admission consideration. Individuals who take the GMAT and obtain a satisfactory score can compensate for other criteria in their application (such as academic performance or work experience). Preference for graduate scholarships will be given to applicants who take the GMAT.*
General admission requirements, student classifications and the process for applying are presented in the Academic Overview section. Additional requirements regarding admission and MBA requirements may be obtained from the associate dean of academics in the Nathan M. Bisk College of Business.
*The GRE may be substituted.
The MBA degree is conferred on a student who has successfully completed 36 credit hours of required and elective courses as listed on the student’s approved Graduate Program Plan.
