MBA Admissions Requirements

Students can be admitted with unconditional or conditional status. Conditionally admitted students must earn unconditional admission status by the time they have completed their fourth graduate course. The student must maintain a B average or higher in the first four courses (with no more than one grade of C or below) as well as satisfy any other conditions that may have been listed on the admission summary sheet. Conditionally admitted students who fall below a 3.0 cumulative GPA in their graduate work will be automatically dismissed from the MBA program.

The College of Business offers a GMAT Scholarship to cover the entire cost of the GMAT test.  You must earn a GMAT score of 550 or higher to qualify and be granted "Unconditional Admission."  This scholarship is awarded after the student successfully completes at least 50% of the graduate program at UNA.
