Admission Requirements

The Admission Committee of the MBA program is concerned with each applicant’s interest, aptitude, and potential for achievement in graduate business studies. The structure of the program lends itself to those students with or without an undergraduate degree in business administration.

Application Deadlines
Although there are no formal application deadlines, we recommend that all documents be submitted to us by November 15 for a January start. The class size is limited and once the seats are filled, all applications will be deferred until the following year.

Selection Criteria
Because each applicant’s background and profile is unique, the Admission Committee does not establish specific quantitative minimum requirements for admission; however, it does adhere to the accreditation standards established by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

La Salle University does not discriminate against any applicant because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, or marital status. Admission is based solely upon an applicant’s qualifications.
