Eligibility Criteria

To be admitted to candidacy in any graduate program leading to a master’s or doctoral degree, applicants must possess a baccalaureate from a regionally accredited college or university and must present evidence of their qualifications for advanced study.

In addition to these general requirements, the specific prerequisites for admission to a particular graduate program should be carefully noted. Applicants who are otherwise acceptable for candidacy but who lack special course prerequisites may be admitted as nonmatriculants. When they have satisfactorily fulfilled such background requirements, they are automatically accorded the status of matriculated degree candidates. (See also the additional requirements of individual schools.)

Course Modules

The M.B.A. degree requires 33 to 66 credits of course work (depending on a student’s prior preparation) in business core and business electives, and may be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. The Graduate Programs Office in the Willumstad School of Business evaluates each student’s prior academic background to determine if certain prerequisite and foundation core courses can be waived, thus reducing the total number of credit hours required to complete the degree. The equivalent courses must have been completed within the past 5-7 years with a grade of B or higher in order to obtain a waiver from prerequisites and foundation courses. This flexibility is intended to accommodate students with varied academic backgrounds, including those who have already earned an advanced degree and are now seeking to earn a graduate business degree. Students are advised to meet with the Director of the MBA Program in Hagedorn Hall, Room 121, as soon as they enter the program and determine waivers, if any, prior to the end of their first semester. The M.B.A. curriculum meets state, regional, and national accreditation standards. For more information, call the Graduate Business Programs Office at (516) 877-4670.

The M.B.A. program has the following unified structure:


(9 credits–may be waived depending on prior academic background)
