You may have an undergraduate degree from any discipline. If you are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program and expect to complete it before the M.S. program start date, you are invited to apply.
Well-qualified students will have:
- Strong written and oral communication skills

6. GMAT/GRE Optional
GMAT/GRE Test scores are not required.
Our typical applicant has the equivalent of a 4-year US Bachelor’s degree, a 3.2/4.0 GPA with strong analytical coursework and a minimum of two months of full-time professional internship experience.
If you wish to strengthen your application you may take, at your option, the GMAT/GRE. As we update our application system to reflect that GMAT/GRE score are no longer required, if you are opting not to take the test, please use 01/01/2025 as a future test date in the test section of the application so we are aware that you will not be taking the exam.
