Application Deadlines

Applicants are accepted on a rolling basis. To receive full consideration for August, please submit all application materials as early as possible.

Admissions Requirements

1. Application Fee

A $75 application fee is due when you submit your online application. Waivers are available for qualified students.

2. Bachelor’s Degree

A four-year bachelor’s degree in any academic field from an accredited college or university with a GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale is required. If you have a three-year non-U.S. degree, you may request a review for determination as to equivalency.

3. Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate coursework are required with your application. Do not mail official transcripts during the applicant stage. An English translation must accompany transcripts issued in a language other than English.

4. Resume

Submit a resume or curriculum vitae that documents your prior work experience, publications, honors and awards received and a summary of your educational credentials.

5. Prerequisites

You may have majored in any area during your undergraduate study. However, the MAP program requires students to have taken ACCT207 Introduction to Financial Accounting and ACCT208 Introduction to Managerial Accounting (or their equivalents) before beginning coursework. In addition, prior to graduation from the MAP program, you will need to show coursework (undergraduate or graduate) which meets the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International general skills, business and management knowledge requirements outside the area of accounting. Normally, those holding an undergraduate business degree from an accredited AACSB International program will have met the general skills, business and management knowledge requirements outside the area of accounting.

Courses taken to fulfill the prerequisites will not count towards fulfilling the 33 credit-hour requirement of the MAP program.

6. GMAT Scores

Submit your GMAT score; a minimum score of 550 is required.

7. Personal Statement

Submit a personal statement that details your goals and objectives and clearly identifies your interest in the Lerner College degree program.

8. Two Letters of Recommendation

Submit two letters of recommendation. Recommendation forms are emailed directly from the online application to the individuals whose names and email addresses you provide. Instructions for returning the completed forms is included in the emails.

9. International Students: Language Test Requirement

International applicants must submit one of the following:

  • proof of having earned a degree in either the United States or a country where the primary language is English;
  • TOEFL score of 100 or higher; or
