Walsh College MBA Group on LinkedInNo GMAT Required
We evaluate your application in a careful review of what you have accomplished since graduating from college, together with your academic record in your other degree programs. Those are much better indicators of your success as an MBA student than a formal test score.

Opportunities for Career Advancement
Our MBA degree is unusually flexible. As a result, our graduates work in many different industries: banking, information technology, human resources and more. Whether your goal is a promotion, a new job or a total career change, our MBA will help you achieve it.

Masters of Business Administration Program Format
Depending on your previous college courses, you may have to take one or more of the six MBA foundation courses. The program core consists of nine courses and a four-course elective requirement which you can elect to take from a number of specializations. You may, but are not required to, focus your courses in a specialization. A total of 13 to 19 courses, totaling 39 to 57 semester credit hours, are required to complete the MBA degree.

You can earn advanced standing for equal graduate course work completed at another college or university. Time limits may apply. You must take at least 24 credit hours while registered as a  Walsh College student.

We require a minimum GPA of 3.0 while registered as a Walsh student. You need to earn a minimum grade of “C” (2.0) in each course you count toward your graduation requirement.
