If you are seeking a management career in business or other related fields, UND's Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is designed for you.
The MBA program emphasizes the development of mid- to upper-level managers, for organizations of all sizes and types. MBA students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including individuals who have undergraduate degrees in business as well as other non-business specialties.
UND's part-time, online program is designed for working professionals who are unable to attend a full-time, on-campus program. You are not required to come to campus at any time.
Applicant must adhere to the UND Graduate School standards for admission. Click here to see the Grad School standards.
Applicants must hold a four-year or higher degree from a regionally accredited institution.
Completion of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) with a score that equals or exceeds an overall score of 500. In certain circumstances, applicants may substitute the GRE or LSAT for the GMAT (with similar percentile scores expected to those noted above). This situation will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Due to the competitiveness of admissions to the MBA program, we do not waive the standardized test requirement.
An overall grade point average of at least 3.00 in the undergraduate degree program or at least 3.25 for the last two years, or equivalent, of undergraduate work (based on 4.00 scale).
Command of the M.B.A. prerequisite curriculum. This command is demonstrated by having satisfactorily completed coursework or testing out of all of the courses found in the M.B.A. prerequisite curriculum. An individual may be provisionally admitted if all but nine (9) credits of the M.B.A. prerequisite curriculum have been completed as of the date of application. All remaining M.B.A. prerequisite curriculum courses must be completed within one year of program admission. During this time, a provisional student will be allowed to take no more than nine credits of graduate coursework. It is critical that all course prerequisites are followed as the initial courses are taken in the program.
Completion of the Test of English as Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination is required for non-English speaking international students. A score that equals or exceeds 550 for the paper examination or 213 for the computer examination is required for acceptance.
Applicants who fail to meet the minimum grade point or GMAT requirements, but who otherwise show high potential for success may be considered for admission to Provisional Status, provided that they meet one of the following indices:
A Composite index score of at least 1010 determined by the formula: (GMAT) + [200 x (overall undergraduate gpa)].
A Composite index score of at least 1060 determined by the formula: (GMAT) + [200 x (last two years or equivalent undergraduate gpa)].
Under no circumstances will applicants with GMAT scores below 450 be recommended for admission.
