    Admission Criteria for the MBA and MSIS programs

    Applications for matriculation are reviewed by the Madden Graduate Admission Committee and evaluated for an applicant’s intellectual abilities, needs, leadership qualities and ability to complete the program.

    Applicants will be assessed according to the following criteria:

    A baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher learning. Transcripts should demonstrate the attainment of an overall G.P.A. of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale). Those who do not meet this particular requirement may be admitted on a non-matriculated basis in foundation courses. Two courses may be taken on this basis in consultation with the MBA or the MSIS director.

    Relevant work experience as well as examples of professional achievement or other information that might be used to assess personal qualities and ability to complete the program.

    Recommendations attesting to the applicant’s intellectual ability, leadership potential and ability to complete the program.

    An acceptable undergraduate GPA and a Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score (or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score converted to a predicted GMAT score) determined by using the following formula: GPA multiplied by 200 plus GMAT score must equal 1050 or greater. GMAT and GRE scores must be taken within the last 5 years.

    The GMAT/GRE requirement will be waived for applicants who:

    • Hold a terminal degree such as a JD, MD, DO, PhD, EdD, PharmD or DDS
    • Hold a graduate degree (master's-level) and/or professional certification (i.e. CPA, CFA, CMA CIA or CFP) and a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA
    • Achieved a satisfactory score on a graduate entrance exam other than the GMAT or GRE (such as the MCAT or LSAT) within the last five years.


    Non-Degree Option
    While completing the application process, up to six credits (two courses) can be taken as a non-degree student.
