MBA Admission Requirements

Graduate Admissions

Consideration for admission to the MBA program requires the following additional documentation:

  1. A resume with summary of all work, extracurricular activities, and educational history of the applicant; Executive concentration (EMBA) requires three years of managerial work experience.
  2. Official transcripts indicating completion of a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution with a GPA of 2.7 (B-) or better on a scale of 4.0.

Conditional admission to the program may be granted to applicants with GPA 2.0 – 2.6, and is based on the students’ personal statement, letters of recommendation, and detailed review of their prior academic transcripts.

Conditionally accepted students will be granted the regular graduate status after achieving at least 3.0 GPA in a term with 9 units or in two consecutive terms with the total of at least 15 units. Undergraduate courses are given for students conditionally accepted with GPA 2.0 – 2.4 before receiving regular status.

Conditionally admitted students with GPA 2.5 and 2.6 are allowed to take MBA courses if they do not need prerequisites. Students with first term GPA below 2.5 are subject to dismissal. Students with GPA of 2.5 – 2.9 can continue with a conditional status for one more term. The conditional status can be given for two consecutive terms only. Based on extra curriculum results, the Provost may grant a student the regular graduate status based on letters of recommendation, GMAT or GRE scores, summary of work experience, research projects, or publications.

Note: All applicants have to meet the University’s general admission requirements, as well as the above degree admission requirements. In addition, international applicants need to meet the international admission requirements.
