Background & Prior Experience

Do you require work experience?

All MBA applicants are required to have a minimum of 3 years of work experience.

English Language Proficiency

Will I need to take an English language exam?

All applicants to the MBSC MBA programs must demonstrate proficiency of English language and can do so via prior academic degree, and/or an English Language Proficiency Exam.

If you have not earned a University Degree in English, scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam are required.

Letters of Recommendation

Who should I ask to provide my letters of recommendation?

You should seek recommendations from people capable of commenting on your professional, leadership, and intellectual capabilities. The most useful evaluations are from people who are able to testify to your professional and leadership skills. Examples include a former faculty member or current work supervisor. If you are currently employed we recommend that one of your recommendations come from your direct supervisor.

Will my recommenders need to submit a paper form or answer questions online?

When completing your online application, you will be prompted to provide contact information for your referees. He or she will be contacted via email and invited to submit recommendations in a format that we will email directly to him/her.

How many recommendations must I submit?

You are required to submit three, with at least one from each of the two categories a) a former faculty member or direct supervisor, and b) other influential member of your network.

Transcripts

Do I need to submit transcripts from every college or university I attended?

Yes, we require all of your transcripts. When completing your online application, you will be prompted to upload unofficial copies of your transcript(s). If you are offered admission, you will be required to submit official attested copies of your transcript(s). Offers of admission are not binding until we verify your official academic records and test scores.

Do I need to convert my GPA into a 4.0 system?

Students reporting grades from institutions that do not evaluate academic performance on a 4.0 GPA scale should NOT convert their scores to a GPA. Report your scores or grades as your university lists them in your official transcripts. Keep in mind that we are familiar with international grading methods and will evaluate your grades accordingly.
