Evaluation Process

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Therefore, your application will be evaluated by our admissions committee upon completion. It is very important that you complete all portions of the application in a timely manner because it will not be reviewed until this happens.

The different portions of the application give the admissions committee a clear picture of a prospective student's background, accomplishments, strengths and potential for success in our program. All components will be considered, in the Committee's recommendation.

These include:

  • Educational background
  • Professional experience
  • Performance on required examinations (GMAT/GRE), if applicable
  • Writing ability/communication skills (Essay Questions)
  • Letters of recommendation

Please note that it is not required for applicants to have a business degree or previous education in business or related discipline to be enrolled in our online program.
