To be eligible to apply you must having the following:

  • Undergraduate Degree: A four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university in the U.S. or an equivalent degree from a foreign country.

  • Mastery of English: Please review the standardized test section to determine if you are required to take the IELTS or TOEFL exam to demonstrate.

Applicants are responsible for determining whether they have the necessary visa status to apply for the Part-time MBA. Information about U.S. visas may be found on the U.S. Department of State website.
