Admissions Requirements

Quinnipiac University’s School of Business offers an MBA program that is consistently ranked among the best in the U.S. The program regularly attracts a very high quality of prospective students, and admission to the program is competitive.

Application timeline


Applications for the full-time, on-campus MBA program are accepted throughout the year. Students interested in part-time study begin their studies in August. 

Application materials


All prospective students must submit the following:

  • Appropriate application form for the full-time, on-campus MBA
  • Official transcripts from all institutions attended
  • One professional letter of recommendation
  • Two other letters of recommendation (professional or other)
  • One current resume
  • One personal statement/letter of intent
  • Scores obtained on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), unless one or more of the conditions discussed below apply.

GMAT/GRE waiver policy


A request for a waiver of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) may be submitted as part of the application process. In general, applicants meeting any of the criteria below may be eligible for such a waiver with documentation of the specific circumstances under which the waiver is being requested. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Completion of a minimum of five years of post-bachelor’s, professional and progressive work experience that reflects increasing levels of responsibility, particularly in such areas as budgets, finance, operations and staff supervision.
  • Completion of a master’s or doctoral level degree from an accredited institution within 10 years of the application to the QU MBA program. This includes the JD, MD, PhD and other related degrees.
  • Successful completion of the CPA or CMA exam series and possession of a license to practice.
  • Successful completion of all CFA examinations and designation as a CFA charter holder.

Eligibility for a GMAT/GRE waiver does not guarantee admission. Applicants granted a waiver and subsequently denied admission may request reconsideration of their application with the inclusion of GMAT or GRE scores.

The final determination of a testing waiver is made by Quinnipiac’s School of Business. This will be done as quickly as possible, but students are encouraged to submit their applications and any accompanying waiver requests as early in the admissions cycle as possible in case there are questions, additional information is needed or the standardized testing requirement is not waived. The admission decision is made by Quinnipiac’s School of Business.

All applicants from non-English-speaking countries must indicate that they have the language capability to understand business instruction in English and must provide official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores. In general, a minimum TOEFL internet-based score of 90 is required for admission (or 233 for computer-based, or 575 for paper-based). In lieu of TOEFL, applicants may submit International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores. A minimum score of 6.5 on this exam, a B or above on the Certificate of Advanced English or a C or above on the Certificate of Proficiency in English is required.
