Deadline for receipt of electronic application and application materials is June 1st.

A strong overall academic average based on upper division grade point average (last sixty credit hours), the GMAT score and preference for one year of professional work experience are minimum requirements for consideration for graduate admission. However, admission decisions are based upon several factors and if other indicators of success are evident, individuals who fall below the established criteria in one of the areas may be considered for admission.
