(GMAT/GRE will be waived for students meeting the condition above.)

Meeting the minimum criteria only assures applicants the consideration of their application for admission to the MBA program. An application must be complete in all respects to be considered for admission to the program.

Applicants who meet most, but not all, of the requirements for admission may be provisionally accepted as a pre-MBA student. Such an admission imposes certain academic limitations on the provisionally accepted students. This option may not be available for international applicants. International students must be fully admitted into the program to receive their I-20. In other words, international applicants must meet ALL the admission requirements when they apply.
