We prefer working professionals whose official transcripts show a 3.0+ GPA in their last 60 credits of bachelor degree study. However, the Graduate Admissions Committee may provisionally admit students who earned less than a 3.0 as undergraduates if they can maintain a minimum grade of “B” in their first four business courses.
