Application for Admission to the MS in Management Program

Applicants must meet the specified admission requirements to be eligible for admission to the MS in Management graduate program. However, meeting these requirements does not ensure acceptance.

Equal opportunity for admission is assured to all applicants subject to qualifications, space, and class-size limitations.

Round 1: December 1

Round 2: February 15 (deadline for international applicants outside of U.S.)

Round 3: April 15

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received. We will continue to accept applications after April 15 until all seats are filled.
