Students who apply to the MBA Online program must meet three groups of standards, academic, language, and undergraduate management competence.
1. Students must hold a bachelors degree at a regionally accredited college or university. This will typically be a four year degree. Students who come from countries where three year undergraduate degrees are the norm, may qualify if they present a GRE examination score of 1100 in addition to the three year degree. Alternatively, students with a three year degree and one additional year of college level credits from accredited schools will meet this requirement.
2. Students must be in good academic standing in the last institution attended.
Students must have a 2.75 (on a 4.0 scale) grade point average in the last 60 semester credits of upper division courses earned in the bachelors degree.
3. Students must attain a minimum score of 450 on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) with minimum scores at or above the 25th percentile on both the verbal and quantitative portions of the test and a minimum score of 4.0 on the Analytical Writing Analysis. Applicants will be exempt from the GMAT requirement if they meet one of the following
a) a masters or other advanced degree from an accredited institution
b) a minimum 3.2 grade point average on the last 60 semester credits
c) at least five years verifiable managerial experience.
1. Students whose first language is other than English must submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 550 or higher.
2. Students will be exempt from the TOEFL if they have at least three years of secondary or higher instruction where English is the primary medium of instruction. Students may submit other evidence of English competency that may be considered as meeting this requirement.
3. During the first two sessions (twenty four weeks) of the program, students must submit evidence that they have satisfied the Universitys Graduate Writing Assessment Requirement (GWAR). There are several ways in which students may meet this requirement.
By taking the Graduate Writing Exam (GWE) administered by the campus testing office and successfully passing with a score of "8" out of "12". The GWE administered each semester and a fee will be charged. Information on test dates and procedures for sign up are available in the Testing office (310)243-3909.
By enrolling in the ENG 350 course and receiving a grade of "B" or better. (Please note that the course may not be taken for credit/no credit.)
By submitting a request to the campus Writing Coordinator if prior coursework from undergraduate or graduate work is believed to satisfy this requirement. Any request submitted regarding coursework must be accompanied by a transcript, and you must have received a grade of "B" or better.
By submitting a request to the campus Writing Coordinator if a writing requirement at another university is believed by you to satisfy the GWAR.
By taking the GMAT and scoring a 4.0 or better on the Analytical Writing Analysis portion of the test. You must submit a copy of your GMAT score to the campus Writing Coordinator requesting equivalency at the graduate level. For you information, the campus Writing Coordinator is located in the University Advisement Center, Bldg. SCC, Room M-110. The phone number is (310)243-3538. Undergraduate Management Competency:
