Admission Requirements

Applicants who have earned undergraduate or graduate degrees in any discipline are invited to apply.

To be considered for admission, please submit the following:

  • Official undergraduate transcripts
  • Two letters of recommendation‚Äč
  • A current resume
  • A personal statement addressing the following:

    • Why you are a strong candidate for the Wilkes MBA program
To be accepted on a regular basis, applicants must have earned a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 in their undergraduate degree program.
An applicant who has earned a cumulative GPA of less than 3.0 in his or her undergraduate degree program will be required to interview with the MBA program director or his designate.
Provisional acceptance
A prospective student may be provisionally accepted if they have applied to the program and meet admissions requirements, but the university is waiting on additional application materials, like official college transcripts.
Conditional acceptance
A prospective student with a GPA of less than 3.0 may be accepted into the program on a conditional basis, pending an interview with the MBA director. The conditionally accepted student must maintain no less than a 3.0 in the first two courses (6 graduate credits) of the MBA program. Failure to maintain the minimum 3.0 may result in dismissal of the conditionally accepted student.

A student accepted into the program is immediately assigned an advisor. Advising sessions are used to discuss career goals, student strengths and course-scheduling options. Sessions can also be used to communicate effective managerial role models and current job market conditions.
