Quinnipiac University

MBA in Business Administration Admissions

We make our admission process as straightforward and personalized as possible. If you have any questions or need guidance, our counselors and advisers in the School of Business are available to assist you at every stage of your application process.

Application Timeline

We accept applications up to 1 or 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester.

Admission Requirements

To be admitted to the program, an applicant must have:

  • An undergraduate degree with a GPA of at least 3.0 from a regionally accredited institution of higher learning
  • Undergraduate coursework in computers and statistics on an introductory level is recommended

Work experience and/or significant prior coursework in statistics and analytics is strongly considered in the admission process. Standardized test scores (such as GMAT or GRE) submitted by students in support of the application are considered, but are not required.

Please note that admission is competitive and that meeting the minimum admission standards does not guarantee acceptance. Applications are considered on a rolling basis, and students may apply to enter during the fall or spring semesters. Candidates are encouraged to submit applications as early as possible to ensure consideration for the semester desired. Applications are evaluated once all materials and fees are received by Quinnipiac. Students can expect to receive a decision within 4 weeks of submitting a completed application.
