2018-2019 Graduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Admission Requirements

Application deadline: February 28

In addition to the criteria below, applicants must meet general graduate admission requirements .

Applicants need to submit a current résumé or CV, a short personal essay that includes a mini research proposal, three letters of recommendation, official transcripts of all prior academic work, a writing sample, official GMAT or GRE scores, and, if appropriate an official TOEFL or IELTS score. Provide these materials directly to the Graduate Admissions Office.

Students need only a 4-year Bachelor’s degree to apply. We expect prospective students to have a broad, foundation of knowledge across at least four of the six traditional business areas of Accounting, Finance, Operations Management, Marketing, Information Systems, and Organizational Behavior. You can demonstrate that background by having taken five or more graduate level courses (or their equivalencies) across the business foundation areas or across the disciplines that provide the substantive foundations for business studies, including computer science, economics, mathematics, political science, psychology, and sociology. Depending on your track, we also expect you to have a basic level of proficiency equivalent to one semester each of calculus, statistics, linear algebra, and micro/macro economics at the undergraduate or graduate level.

We do not consider applicants with less than 480 on the GMAT (or its equivalent on the GRE). As in our master’s degree programs, the higher your GMAT/GRE score, the more likely your chances of acceptance, but no score on a standardized test guarantees a positive admission decision.
