Transfer Process

MSQM students in good standing, with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0, may be eligible to transfer into the Langone Part-time MBA Program. This process requires no additional application or materials. 

The transfer itself takes place either in the final spring of the MSQM program, allowing students to take Langone program courses in their final MSQM semester, or the summer following completion of all MSQM courses.

Students who transfer to the Langone Program will be considered to have completed all MBA core course requirements once they have completed 33 MSQM credits. Students who transfer have six years from the date they matriculated in the MSQM Program to complete the MBA degree.
