Admission Requirements

Quinnipiac University’s School of Business offers an online 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 online MBA program are accepted throughout the year. Students who are interested in full-time study can begin the program in January, May or August. Candidates are encouraged to submit applications as early as possible to ensure consideration for the semester desired.

Application materials

All prospective students must submit the following:

  • 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.

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.
