Master of Business Administration

The master of business administration degree program provides a broad view of organizational performance from the perspective of general management. Applicants to the program must anticipate completing a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university before matriculating in the program and have studied a prerequisite core curriculum.

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the M.B.A. program must anticipate having completed, prior to matriculation in the program, either of the following:

    · a baccalaureate in business or accounting, or
    · a baccalaureate in another field together with Ithaca College's 27-credit hour management minor and five prerequisite courses or equivalent coursework, as determined by the M.B.A. Program Committee, taken elsewhere.

Applicants do not need extensive work experience; most accepted students enter the program upon completion of their baccalaureates. The program committee, however, gives preference to applicants who have completed internships and have had meaningful summer jobs. Preference is also given to those who intend to pursue the M.B.A. degree full-time. Applicants should have cumulative undergraduate grade point averages of approximately 3.0 or better (on the 4.0 system) and GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) scores that indicate future success in the M.B.A. program.
Applicants normally are admitted to the program as matriculated students (i.e., degree candidates). Occasionally, they are admitted provisionally or as extramural students.

Graduate Management Admission Test Scores

Applicants to the M.B.A. program must arrange for official GMAT scores to be submitted to Ithaca College. Information about the GMAT can be obtained from GMAT, Educational Testing Service, P.O. Box 6103, Princeton, NJ 08541-6103; 609-771-7330;
Preparatory Undergraduate Courses --- 27 credits
Preparatory undergraduate courses are offered at Ithaca College through a management minor that can be taken by students who are not majoring in accounting or business administration. Equivalent courses may be taken at other institutions. To verify the equivalency of courses taken elsewhere, contact the M.B.A. program director. Upper-level courses (300- and 400-level) must be taken at a four-year institution.
