Admission to the online M.S. in Finance is selective and requires evidence of strong quantitative abilities. Because the program is designed to provide additional expertise in finance to professionals at all stages of their careers, professional work experience is not required for admission.
The admissions committee does however, require the following:
- B.S. or B.A. from an accredited institution (the committee will specifically review GPA’s in quantitative coursework).
- GRE/GMAT score - Applicants are asked to take the GMAT/GRE exam unless they are eligible for the requirement to be waived based upon prior scholastic performance.
- Two Letters of Recommendation
- Applicants who have graduated within 3 years should provide letters from faculty members.
- Applicants who have been out of school for more than 3 years can provide recommendations from a direct supervisor or colleague.
- Personal Statement
- International applicants must receive a TOEFL score of 600 or higher on the paper-based test (250 on the computer, 100 on the internet-based test) sent directly from the Educational Testing Service to Institution Code: 6879.
Admissions will occur on a rolling basis. Transfer credits will be accepted at the discretion of the admissions committee.
