Potential Students

Applicants for the Master of Business Administration in Project Management must have a bachelor’s degree; however, the degree need not be in business administration. Applicants who are graduates of non-business programs are also encouraged to apply. The admissions decision is based on a review of the application documentation including work experience, academic performance, references and written statement of purpose. Although taking the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a requirement, it is highly recommended for admission consideration. Individuals who take the GMAT and obtain a satisfactory score can compensate for other criteria in their application (such as academic performance or work experience). Preference for graduate scholarships will be given to applicants who take the GMAT.

For more admission information, please see Graduate Admission Requirements.
