The transcript must include the degree and date on which it was conferred and a grade point average of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale.
Applicants that do not possess an undergraduate degree in business may be required to complete foundational business courses. These undergraduate business prerequisites include: Principles of Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, and Marketing, as well as Statistics. Undergraduate business prerequisites needed are determined by a review of the applicant’s transcript(s).
REQUIRED FOR TN STUDENTS ONLY
Applicants with specific deficiencies may be conditionally admitted to the program. For instance, the foundational business courses noted above are considered prerequisites to the MBA Program. Applicants lacking recent undergraduate credit in one or more of these courses may be required to complete these courses before full admission to the program. Or depending upon the circumstances, the applicant may be admitted conditionally and allowed to complete a program prerequisite while concurrently enrolled in MBA classes.
Students who do not have all paperwork in the Graduate Admissions Office by the first day of the term can also be conditionally admitted. Failure to complete the required paperwork by the third week of the term may result in a student being dropped from all coursework. The student may not continue in the program until all paperwork is received.
Students who meet all the above requirements and who have successfully completed the application process may be fully admitted. After notification of acceptance, an advisor will be assigned. The student and his/her advisor will complete a Planned Program and enroll in coursework. A completed and signed Planned Program must be on file within the first fifteen (15) hours of the student’s program.
