Undergraduate Admissions

Welcome to Our Learning Community!

Here at the Mason School of Business, we view education as a comprehensive endeavor. We encourage students to create a unique Individual Program of Study (IPS) that combines academic interests and curiosities with career goals.

Students must apply directly to the School of Business if they wish to major or minor in a business discipline; this application process typically begins during the second semester of a student's sophomore year due to the prerequisites required within the program. Our admissions process is holistic as well as competitive: we seek a diverse array of students who are committed to academic excellence, extracurricular involvement, and personal achievement. Successful students exhibit:

  • Academic achievement to date as exhibited by grades, course load, difficulty of courses trends in academic performance, and recovery from academic setbacks.
  • Personal attributes and life experiences that illustrate resilience in the face of challenges, ethical character, openness to diverse perspectives, entrepreneurial and creative spirit, and collaborative ability.
  • Strong communication skills as demonstrated by one's application essay.

We offer students the choice of applying to be a business major or minor. Business major coursework consists of a comprehensive core curriculum as well as major-specific classes and the potential for further study through a concentration. The minors program offers non-business majors the opportunity to gain in-depth exposure to one business discipline. Our program provides an adaptable course of study that can flex and bend according to a student's own educational and professional goals. Here at the Mason School of Business, we are committed to equipping students with the tools, resources, and support they need to successfully personalize their education.
