Applicants must earn an undergraduate business or economics degree (business administration, economics, finance, marketing, management, supply chain management, etc.) from a regionally accredited college or university and an AACSB- or EQUIS-accredited business school and have completed three prerequisite courses: "Introduction to Financial Accounting," "Microeconomics," and "Finance." Applicants cannot have more than two years of work experience, or must have graduated within 26 months before matriculation in August 2020. Full-time work experience is not a requirement. Proficiency in English is required. 

The one-year master's program begins in August and concludes at the end of June. The admissions committee seeks well-rounded individuals who bring exceptional intellectual capabilities, proven academic preparation, and a passion for their chosen field of study. The committee looks for evidence of strong academic ability and qualities of character, such as motivation, maturity, tenacity, integrity, ability to work with others, self-reliance, and leadership. We strive to achieve a class environment with diversity of perspectives and life experiences.
