What are the admission requirements?

The ideal student entering our graduate programs possesses a "package" of strong academic performance, high motivation and well-planned career goals as expressed in the interview and/or application essay. Two years of work experience is preferred. A person with an undergraduate degree in any discipline from a regionally or nationally accredited college may apply for admission. There are no prerequisite courses for the MHRM program. Applications from international students are also welcomed.

For admission to the program, the college prefers applicants to have a grade-point average (GPA) of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or higher in the last two years of undergraduate work and all post-baccalaureate work. Graduates from U.S. undergraduate institutions with a GPA between 2.7 – 3.0, may be admitted on a conditional basis. Students admitted on the conditional status must maintain a B-average in their first semester.

Applicants must also interview with the Admissions Director.

The GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions Test) test is NOT required for admission into the MHRM Program.
