Full-time MBA FAQs


Frequently Asked Questions

The GMAT/GRE is optional for those holding a bachelors or masters with a 3.2 GPA from a regionally or an AACSB accredited not-for-profit institution. However, applicants are encouraged to submit GMAT/GRE test scores if they believe that the scores will strengthen their application for admission and scholarship consideration. 

The GMAT/GRE can also be waived if you hold a terminal degree such as an MD, JD or PhD from a regionally-accredited institution. Also, veterans or actively serving U.S. military personnel, Peace Corps Volunteers, with a 3.0 GPA or better from a regionally accredited, not-for-profit institution will be considered for a GMAT waiver. 

If you are considering a dual-degree such as the TLP program, please note that the GMAT/GRE may be required by the other master's program. 

Applicants complete an online application form and a statement of purpose while procuring one letter of recommendation, one set of official transcripts and official GMAT or GRE scores (some waivers available). They also pay an application fee ($90). The Admissions Committee will review completed application packets and identify candidates for an interview—via zoom. The Admissions Process includes details.
