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.
All documents should be submitted by August 15 (Fall), December 15 (Spring), and April 15 (Summer). Under special circumstances, students may be admitted up to the first day of classes of each term. International student applications should be complete at least two months prior to the dates listed above.
A limited number of students with at least a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or better may be admitted into the program for one semester without the GMAT test scores. Conditionally accepted students are required to successfully complete the GMAT 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.
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.
Graduate Management Admission Test
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is designed to assess capabilities which are important in the study of management at the graduate level. The GMAT is sponsored and controlled by the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC) and is administered by Pearson/VUE. For more information about the GMAT, visit www.mba.com. La Salle's school code for the GMAT exam is 548-KK-16. With permission of the Director of the appropriate Graduate Business Program, test scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be accepted.
La Salle University offers workshops for anyone interested in preparing for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT).
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.
An applicant may request the transfer of graduate credit(s) earned at another institution. Each request will be evaluated on its own merits but must be a grade of "B" or better. No more than six hours of graduate credit will be accepted for transfer purposes.
