M.B.A. Program-specific Admission Criteria 

 Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT®). The M.B.A. Admissions Committee will take cognizance of the three GMAT® sub-scores (Quantitative, Verbal, and Analytical Writing Assessment) for purposes of assessing each candidate’s specific aptitude strengths and weaknesses. Subject to the evaluation and approval of the M.B.A. Admissions Committee, applicants who have not taken the GMAT® at the time of application may be granted conditional admission (see p. 20), with a requirement that they submit satisfactory GMAT® scores not later than the end of the first term following admission.
 Applicant’s work experience: Candidates who have a minimum of two years of work experience will be given preference for admission.
 The Committee follows a balanced approach in evaluating each candidate on their individual scores for the Undergraduate GPA, GMAT®, and TOEFL®, Academic IELTS or EMSAT and their work experience. This is based on the principle that ample satisfaction by an applicant of one or more of these criteria may be to a reasonable extent compensate for deficiencies in one or more of the other criteria used in the applicant’s evaluation.
 Students who have earned their undergraduate degree in an unrelated major may be required to pursue one or more graduate foundation courses. The Graduate Foundation Course Program consisting of various discipline-specific modules is designed to prepare potential students who do not have the necessary competencies in the core areas of accounting, microeconomics, finance, and statistics. These students are required to enroll and satisfactorily complete an appropriate series of non-credited courses in the Foundation Course Program. The courses required of each such student will be determined on a case-by-case basis following a review of the student’s academic record.
M.Ed. Program-specific Admission Criteria 

 Undergraduate degree: Preferably in education or in a discipline related to a content area of teaching that is applicable to primary or secondary education.
 Graduate Record Examination (GRE®) or Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators
 The applicant’s history, including length of teaching experience, skills, and evidence of content knowledge (for applicants seeking admission at the secondary level) will be assessed at the time of admission to determine admission eligibility and whether certain courses could be waived. If waived, the student will be required to take the alternative course as indicated by the Dean.
P.T.C. Program-specific Admissions Criteria 

Admission requirements for the Professional Teaching Certificate Program are the same as those for the M.Ed. degree with one exception – the GRE®/Praxis® is waived for this level of graduate study.
M.A. in Leadership and Innovation in Contemporary Media (LICM) Program-specific Admission Criteria
