Entrance Requirements for MBA in Accounting
To enter the MBA in Accounting, applicants must:
- Have a four-year bachelor’s degree or the equivalent in formal training and work experience. Acceptance is based upon the quality of undergraduate performance, aptitude test scores, work experience and other achievements.
- Take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) (recommended).
- Be familiar with principles of economics from a prior college course or from reading a principles-of-economics textbook.
- Knowledge of college algebra is strongly recommended for acceptance into the program. Students who do not have the prerequisite knowledge of mathematics will be required to take MGT 417 Mathematics for Business in a summer session prior to their first course.
For students whose first language is not English: official English proficiency test scores (either TOEFL, IELTS Academic or PTE). The test must have been taken within the last two years. Students with scores below 6.5 on IELTS Academic, 90 on TOEFL iBT or 58 on PTE will be asked to take the test again or change their program to English as a Second Language.
