University of Mary Washington Partnership

Over the years, many students from the University of Mary Washington have continued their studies at W&M's Master of Accounting and Master of Science in Business Analytics programs. They have been highly successful at W&M due to their preparation from the University of Mary Washington and have continued on to live impactful lives in the world.

With this partnership, the MAcc and MSBA residential programs continue this trend of excellence. With a faculty nomination, a student with a qualifying GPA will submit an online application, resume, academic transcripts, a personal statement, and participate in an interview. A student is not required to submit GMAT/GRE scores, formal letters of recommendation, or pay application fees. Qualified candidates who apply on or before February 15 will receive a guaranteed scholarship and opportunities to compete for additional scholarships and graduate assistantships.
