Residency 2014

MBA Residency 2014


MBA applicants are evaluated based on the undergraduate GPA, GPA for any completed graduate course work, GMAT/GRE score, personal essay, recommendations, and other materials submitted as part of the MBA application.

Applicants who have not completed undergraduate principles level courses in financial accounting, managerial accounting, finance, management, marketing, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and statistics must take the appropriate MBA foundations courses (1 credit each in accounting, finance, management, marketing, and statistics - offered summers only) before enrolling in any other MBA courses. Credits earned in these courses will not count towards the 36 credit hours required for the degree, nor will they count toward the student's graduate GPA. The grades in the MBA foundations courses may not be used to satisfy the GPA admission criteria.
