The Admission Committee of the full-time MBA Program is concerned with each applicant's interest, aptitude, and potential for achievement in graduate business studies. The program is structured to accommodate students with various undergraduate degrees. Program applications are reviewed on a "rolling" basis. Students may enter the program in the fall, spring or summer. All candidates must have completed a four year undergraduate degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution of higher learning to qualify for admission. Work experience is not a requirement.

Waiver of the GMAT or GRE Requirement
Traditionally, only applicants possessing a Master’s or Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) may be considered for a GMAT/GRE waiver.
Effective Fall 2012 applicants with an undergraduate business degree from an AACSB accredited program who have a minimum overall GPA of 3.2 or above will also be granted a GMAT/GRE waiver.
AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation.Click here to see if your undergraduate business program is AACSB accredited.
A limited number of students with at least a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher may be admitted into the program for one semester without the GMAT or GRE test scores. Conditionally accepted students are required to successfully complete the GMAT or GRE by the end of their first enrolled semester. Conditionally accepted students are not eligible for financial aid loans until they are fully (regularly) accepted to the program
An applicant may request the transfer of graduate credit(s) earned at another institution. Each request will be evaluated on its own merits. Grades accepted for transfer must be "B" or better. A maximum of six credits on the graduate level (600-level) will be accepted for transfer purposes.
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.
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.
