Applications are invited from individuals who have earned undergraduate or graduate degrees in any discipline or field of study.
To be considered for admission, the applicant must meet the following minimum requirements:
Submit to the Graduate Admissions Office a completed graduate application for admission with payment of appropriate application fee;
Demonstrate satisfactory performance as an undergraduate by providing to the Graduate Admissions Office a complete set of official undergraduate transcripts as evidence of an earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution.
To be accepted on a regular basis, a candidate for the Wilkes MBA must have obtained a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 in his/her undergraduate degree program.
A prospective student with a GPA of less than 3.0 may be accepted into the MBA program on a provisional basis. To change to regular status, the provisionally accepted MBA student must maintain no less than a 3.0 for each course in the first six graduate credits of the MBA program. Failure to maintain the minimum 3.0 in any course will result in dismissal of the provisionally accepted student from the MBA program.
The MBA Program at Wilkes practices intensive, self-directed student advising. A student accepted into the program is immediately assigned an advisor.
Advising sessions are used as an opportunity to communicate effective
managerial role models, changing job market conditions, student career ambitions and strengths and to identify course scheduling options. The focus of the advising process is to encourage students to develop a responsible and rewarding career.
Thirty-nine (39) credit hours are required for all MBA students.
The credits are broken down in the following manner: six (6) credits in Foundation Courses, twenty-one (21) credits in Core Courses, six (6) credits in Elective Courses, and six (6) credits in Capstone Courses. MBA Core Courses cannot be taken on an independent basis.
