ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

  • Resume - Can be uploaded into the online application.

GMAT Alternative Evaluation

Applicants may request an alternative evaluation for the GMAT* test score requirement based on the following criteria:

1.     The applicant has already earned a graduate degree from a regionally accredited institution or its equivalent in the case of students applying with an international education background.

2.     The applicant has at least five years of full-time professional experience demonstrating progressive responsibilities in leadership, management, personnel supervision, financial management, information technology or data analysis.

3.     The applicant has at least three years of full-time professional experience with a 3.25 undergraduate GPA.**

4.     The applicant has a 3.5 undergraduate GPA** in a business degree from Kennesaw State University or another AACSB accredited institution, or in an engineering degree from a regionally accredited institution. 

*The KSU MBA program will accept GRE scores, but a GMAT score is highly recommended. If at any point before you enroll in the KSU MBA program you submit an official GMAT or GRE score to KSU, any test alternative granted will no longer be valid. The submitted GMAT or GRE score will then be used for your admissions decision.

**The KSU MBA program will use your undergraduate institutional GPA from where you earned a bachelor’s degree or the GPA from your last 60 undergraduate credit hours (whichever is higher) for the GMAT alternative and admissions decision.

If you would like to be considered for the test alternative, please check the corresponding box on your application for admission. Once your paid application, all official transcripts, and your resume have been received, a decision will be made regarding your request for the GMAT alternative. We will communicate with you if a GMAT score is necessary for us to consider your candidacy.

NOTE: To be considered for admission to a KSU graduate program, applicants must meet the admission requirements of the Graduate College.

If you have any questions, please email KSUMBA@Kennesaw.edu.
