Students should submit applications for the MBA program in the spring semester of their junior year. Upon acceptance to the program, students will achieve provisional status into the MBA program and will be eligible to take the four graduate level courses during the senior year of their baccalaureate program. Requirements for obtaining provisional status are as follows:

  • An undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0 (“B”).
  • Graduate Admission Application.
  • MBA Required Foundational Courses form.
  • Two letters of reference: 1) one from faculty in the School of Business who can attest to your ability to do graduate-level work and 2) a letter of ethical/character reference from someone familiar with the applicant other than immediate family. (This requirement is waived for Mount students with a 3.0 GPA or higher)
  • Submission of a one-page, typed statement of the applicant’s career goals in the next five years and how an MBA will help you in achieving your goals. (This requirement is waived for Mount students with a 3.0 GPA or higher)
