Admission to the Executive MBA program is selective and based upon all application materials submitted by the candidate. We prefer applicants to have a minimum of five years of professional experience and to be in positions responsible for managing people, projects, products, data or budgets within their organization. A bachelor’s degree is required. However, the program does not require an undergraduate degree in business. Given the profile of those admitted to the MBA program and the design of our curriculum, students with undergraduate degrees in the liberal arts, the sciences, or engineering quickly build a comfort level equivalent to those with undergraduate degrees in business. The candidate’s professional experience, ability to successfully complete graduate work in management, career accomplishments, as well as the unique contribution that each individual will bring to our program are among the factors evaluated during the admissions process.
Steps in the Admission process
A completed application form should be submitted along with a $20 non-refundable application fee. Contact Pat Gallion for an application form.
An official transcript should be requested by you from each college attended. Transcripts should be forwarded from your previous college(s) directly to our office. Please use the mailing address shown above. All transcripts and GMAT scores must be received prior to admission.
After your application materials have been reviewed, we will contact you and a personal interview with the Dean of the Frost School of Business will be arranged. Considering the application package in its entirety, the Admissions Committee takes a comprehensive approach to evaluating applications.
