No 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.
