Graduate Program in Business Administration (M.B.A.)

Domestic Student M.B.A. Admissions Requirements And Application Deadlines

Students can apply for direct admission to the MBA program. Students have the option of choosing one of the three program specializations: Management of the Growing Enterprise specialization, Non-Profit and Charitable Organization Management, or International Business.

To be admitted into the M.B.A. program, participants must meet the following requirements:

  • Applicants must normally have a bachelor’s degree. In exceptional cases, a combination of education and work experience may be considered.
  • Applicants must have a GPA of at least 3.0 (B) based on the final two years of their undergraduate program.
  • Successful applicants must have sufficient knowledge of math and statistics. Some students may be required to take additional Math and Statistics courses before admission into the program is granted.
  • Applicants must complete the GMAT exam. While no minimum GMAT score is identified, in order to be competitive, applicants need a score of 550 or better. Selected applicants must successfully complete an entrance interview (which may occur by telephone conference call). The interview evaluates an applicant’s level of maturity, interpersonal skills, career focus, and motivation. For international students, the interview will be deferred until the final semester of the ESLI Pre-Masters Program.

The application process includes submission of an application form, all post-secondary education transcripts, GMAT score, 2 letters of reference and a personal statement that illustrates the applicant’s readiness to study in the -M.B.A. program.

Entry to the MBA program depends upon the specialization chosen, with entry possible most months for the International Business Specialization and in August, October, and January for the Management of the Growing Enterprise specialization and Non-Profit and Charitable Organization Management specializations. The application deadline is two months prior to the desired date of entry.
