Congratulations on taking your first step towards earning your MBA.

Applying to our programs is simple. We ask that you have the following things available to you when you apply:

  • 250-word statement explaining why you have decided to pursue your MBA
  • GMAT score or intended test date*
  • A minimum of two years of applicable professional experience, five years for our Executive Leadership Program

The university encourages applicants with degrees in all major fields of study from accredited institutions. No specific undergraduate courses are required; however, students with non-business baccalaureates are required to complete the following three prerequisite courses: 

  • Financial accounting
  • Statistics
  • Economics (microeconomics is preferred; macroeconomics is acceptable)    

After you are accepted into the MBA program, your official transcripts or credential evaluations and official test scores (if required) will be sent to the Graduate School to be verified before you are fully admitted.

*GMAT waivers are available for candidates with five or more years of professional experience. To find out if you qualify for a waiver please email a copy of your current resume to mba@jmu.edu.
