Official Transcripts

Transcripts reflecting course work pursued at all higher education institutions attended must be provided to the Office of the Graduate School before admission to MSU can be considered. Each applicant must have official transcripts sent directly to MSU. Copies of transcripts will not be accepted.

Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)

Each applicant must register for and take the GMAT. Information about the GMAT can be found at http://www.mba.com. This web site makes it possible for students to access general information about the GMAT, review sample test questions, and register to take the GMAT online. However, members of the Beta Gamma Sigma (the international honor society serving business programs accredited by AACSB International) may request to have the GMAT requirement waived.


ADMISSION STATUS

Applications for admission are reviewed and several factors are considered, including the applicant’s GPA on his/her last 60 hours of undergraduate course work and the score on the GMAT. Admission decisions are made by the Dillard College of Business Administration’s Graduate Program Committee.

International applicants must meet a minimum score on the TOEFL as required on page 20 in the 2012-2014 Graduate Catalog.

Unconditional Admission

A citizen of the U.S.A. who (1) has an earned undergraduate degree, (2) submits an application for graduate admission (including all required application materials), and (3) has been accepted for admission by the Dillard College of Business Administration’s Graduate Program Committee will be unconditionally admitted to the MBA program. To be admitted unconditionally, an international applicant must not only meet the three conditions above but also satisfy the TOEFL requirements shown above.
