M.S. in MIT
We're looking for well-rounded individuals who showcase strong intellectual capabilities, diverse professional experiences, and a passion for lifelong learning.
Admitted students are academically competitive; have successfully held positions of professional responsibility related to the management of IT; and demonstrate qualities of character such as motivation, maturity, tenacity, integrity, ability to work with others, self-reliance, and leadership. Factors such as diversity of perspective and functional expertise outside of IT may also be considered.
To be considered for admission to the M.S. in MIT Program, applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have met the following minimum requirements:
Have a conferred bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. The M.S. in MIT Program accepts students with a wide range of undergraduate majors.
Have a minimum of two years of professional work experience (post bachelor’s degree) that includes significant managerial or technical involvement with IT.
Demonstrate strong oral and written English language skills. Non-native English speakers may need to submit official TOEFL or IELTS scores.
GMAT, GRE, and EA Information
Standardized test scores are not required for admission to the M.S. in MIT Program. Applicants may voluntarily submit their Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), Graduate Record Examination (GRE), or Executive Assessment (EA) test scores to help the admissions committee better understand your academic readiness for the program. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to ask an applicant to submit an official standardized test score if they feel an additional academic data point is necessary to make an admissions decision.
An international applicant is anyone who is not a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident at the time of application to the University of Virginia (UVA).
The M.S. in MIT is considered a non-residential program by U.S. government standards and therefore cannot provide F-1 visa sponsorship for international applicants who will require a student visa to enter or remain in the U.S.
If you are an international applicant who will not need a UVA-sponsored visa to study and work in the U.S. for the duration of the program, please be sure to indicate your current visa type on your application to confirm your eligibility. If you are not sure if you are allowed to concurrently study full time and work full time in your current visa status, please consult with your visa sponsor or your attorney before applying to our program to avoid any potential violations of your visa status.
