WebMBA Admissions Information

The WebMBA program in the Richards College of Business is open to all students who qualify, including international students. Regardless of undergraduate degree and major, any student who has graduated with a four-year degree from an accredited institution and who has two years professional work experience will be considered for admission. 

 

Admission is based on several criteria, including the applicant's score on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and undergraduate grade point average. An applicant will not be admitted until a GMAT score and a transcript of all undergraduate courses have been supplied.

 

To be considered for admission, the analytical writing section of the GMAT must be 3.0 or higher and the total GMAT score must be 450 or more.  An applicant must have a minimum of at least 950 points based on the formula: 200 times the undergraduate GPA (4.0 system) + the GMAT score; or at least 1000 points based on the formula: 200 times the upper division GPA (4.0 system) + the GMAT score.  

The WebMBA program relies on a competitive admissions process. In all cases final admission decisions are made by the Richards College of Business Graduate Admissions Committee.
