Additional Admissions Information

Admissions policies are important because students in this 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 the business management degree 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 three 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 may start their program in June.

Application deadline – The application deadline is approximately four weeks before the start of any session.
