  1. A minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale) from the undergraduate degree granting institution. (Applicants with graduate level coursework must submit graduate transcripts showing all graduate level coursework attempted.)
  2. Or, a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale) from the master’s degree granting institution if the applicant has an earned master’s degree.
  3. MBA Admissions essay using the MBA Essay Guidelines.

Candidates with less than 3-5 years of professional work experience must show significant leadership roles in college, internships, or community volunteerism in both the professional work history and the essay.
  5. When deemed necessary, additional information including an interview may be required.

*Applicants must have the transcript sent to Concordia directly from the institution of record. A student-delivered transcript will not be accepted as an official transcript, unless it is received in the original sealed envelope and appropriately stamped by the institution of record as "Issued to student in a sealed envelope."

 

Prerequisites

Prerequisite knowledge includes an understanding and basic skills in the areas of accounting, finance, economics, marketing, management, and business law.  If you do not have a strong undergraduate background in business, please don’t let that stop you from applying.  Candidates who are non-business undergraduate majors, or choose to apply to the program with a GPA below the minimum 2.75, are required to submit assessment scores in Math and Statistics as part of the application package.  Details about how to take the assessment from IVY Software can be found here.

 

Conditional Admission

Students who are conditionally admitted to the program because of a non-business undergraduate major or a GPA below the minimum 2.75 will be required to complete a prerequisite module in Math and Statistics and a post-assessment with a passing score of 70% or higher, prior to starting the program.  Details about the module and post-assessment can be found here.

 

Transfer credits

Transfer credits are not accepted for the MBA program. This is a cohort-based interdisciplinary program so it is essential that all students participate in every course.
