You are not required to have an undergraduate degree, coursework or work experience in business. The Carlson School recruits and admits students from a broad range of academic and professional backgrounds. About one-third of our students come from a traditional business undergraduate or professional background, another third of our students have a background in technology or engineering, and the last third have a background in a wide variety of disciplines and functional areas (such as non-profit, education, visual and performing arts, etc.).
We require all materials, including test scores, to be submitted before we review an application. Prospective students should plan to take the GMAT or GRE on or before the application due date in order to meet the application deadline. We recommend taking the GMAT or GRE at least two to four weeks prior to the application date to ensure timely review of your application.
Admission interviews are by invitation only. Our admissions team will invite qualified candidates to interview at the Carlson School of Management. Not all applicants will be interviewed. Admissions interviews may include personal interview with a staff /faculty member, a class visit and time to speak with a student ambassador. Although we highly recommend coming to campus if you are chosen to interview, interviews may be conducted via Skype or phone.
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a standardized computer-adaptive test used by schools to help assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study in business or management. It measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills. The MBA in Two program requires every applicant to take the GMAT.
We require all materials, including test scores, to be submitted before reviewing an applicant for admission into our program. We recommend taking the GMAT at least two to four weeks prior to the priority application deadline to ensure timely review of your application.
