Master of Business Administration

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 from an accredited college or university, or

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

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 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 should have a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of approximately 3.00 or better (on the 4.00 system) and GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) scores that indicate future success in the M.B.A. program. Official GMAT scores must be submitted to Ithaca College by the Educational Testing Service. Information about the GMAT can be obtained from GMAT, Educational Testing Service, P.O. Box 6103, Princeton, NJ 08541-6103; 609-771-7330; www.ets.org.

Preparatory Undergraduate Courses -- 27 credits

The School of Business offers preparatory undergraduate courses through a management minor that can be taken by Ithaca College students who are not majoring in accounting or business administration. Equivalent courses also may be taken at other institutions. To verify the equivalency of courses taken elsewhere, contact the M.B.A. program director. Upper-level courses (levels three and four) must be taken at an accredited four-year institution.
