Application Requirements

All students admitted to graduate programs at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business must have a conferred bachelor's degree from an accredited institution prior to matriculation.

The Part-Time MBA program accepts applications in both Spring and Fall. We encourage you to apply by Round 1 to ensure the best chance of a seat being available in the class.

GMAT or GRE, FastStart

Why we don't require GMAT or GRE to apply

Data indicates that these test scores are not necessarily the best predictor of success for professionals like you, who have multi-dimensional applications that include information about academic performance and impressive professional experience. If you have already taken the GMAT or GRE, we are always happy to accept your test scores, and our admissions committee can consider that information as part of their decision, but scores are not required.

Need more time? Consider our MBA FastStart Non-Degree Option

MBA FastStart is an option for students who are not quite ready to apply for full admission into the Part-Time MBA program. We offer several of our Part-Time MBA courses on a non-degree seeking basis in spring, summer and fall. It truly is a fast start: No recommendations, no essays, no interview, and a short, simple application.

MBA FastStart students may take up to nine credit hours without gaining full admission into the program as long as there is capacity in the course. If MBA FastStart students become degree-seeking students, all non-degree classes transfer automatically to their degree.

Tuition for non-degree seeking students is the same as fully admitted Part-Time MBA students. Please review the tuition details. Non-degree graduate-level courses are not eligible for federal financial aid, but some private loans are available through traditional lending institutions, like banks. Just make sure the lender does not require degree-seeking status.

"The best experiences I had in the PTMBA program involved working with my colleagues on projects and deliverables. Some really great conversations bubbled out when we had to put our heads together to solve a problem or recall information that the professors discussed in class. Not only did it cement and expedite the learning process, it made it so much more exciting."
