Entrance Requirements for the MBA in Sustainable Business
Applicants must have a four-year undergraduate degree or the equivalent. Acceptance is based upon the quality of undergraduate performance, aptitude test scores, work experience and other achievements.
Before enrolling for the first semester of the MBA, students should 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.
Applicants who have an undergraduate GPA lower than 3.0 may compensate for that by having a higher junior-senior GPA, by scoring well on the GMAT, or by taking 3 business courses at the undergraduate level and earn a B or higher in each course:
|4-year GPA||Jr-Sr GPA||GMAT||Coursework|
|2.8 to 3.0||3.0 or higher||50th percentile or higher||3 additional business courses|
|2.5 to 2.8||3.2 or higher||50th percentile or higher||3 additional business courses|
One-year, full-time MBA
- If you have an undergraduate degree with a major in business and a GPA of 2.8 or higher, you may receive waiver credit for undergraduate business courses in any of the eight MBA Foundation areas in which you received a grade of B or higher: Marketing, Accounting, Financial Management, Business Law and Ethics, Operations/Quality Management, Human Resource Management, MIS, and Sustainable Business.
- Maximum 18 credits may be waived.
- Students who waive the full MBA Foundation and who take classes on campus in the daytime schedule could earn their MBA in as little as one year.
English language verification
For students whose first language is not English: official English proficiency test scores within the past 2 years, unless you have earned a full-time, on-campus degree from Canada, Australia, the UK, or the US within the past 2 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.
