What to Expect

After the International Center receives all admission materials, the department reviews the applicant’s file. The student is notified of the committee’s decision within approximately two weeks.

Students in the Online M.A. in Management program significantly shape the learning experience for themselves and others. As such, the ability of applicants to both contribute to as well as benefit from this program are seriously considered. Admission is based upon a review of each applicant’s academic achievements, work experience, personal statement, and references. While the entirety of an applicant’s package is considered, accepted students generally fit into one of the following categories:

Regular Program Acceptance – Students admitted to the program in this group typically have undergraduate GPAs of 3.0 or higher and solid work experience. Most students are admitted under this category.

Provisional Program Acceptance – Students admitted to the program provisionally typically have undergraduate GPAs between 2.5 and 2.9. Only a limited number of applicants in this group are accepted into the program. Students in this group should take special care in writing their personal statement. If admitted, provisional students must maintain a B or better GPA overall in the first 12 units of coursework with no course grade below a B-.

Start Times

Students can choose from five start times throughout the academic year to begin their program, including Fall I Term, Fall II Term, Spring I Term, Spring II Term, and Summer Term. If needed, students can take prerequisite courses during any of these five terms before beginning the course requirements of the Online MAM Program.
