SBNM’s Approach to Admission
The admissions process in the School of Business and Nonprofit Management is straightforward and highly personal. You’ll work closely with SBNM admissions staff, who have over 40 years of combined professional experience helping individuals evaluate their career and educational goals.
The Admissions Committee carefully evaluates applicants on their potential for success within, and ability to contribute meaningfully to, SBNM. The factors used to determine admission to SBNM include:
- Completed online application and essay
- Previous academic performance
- Professional experience and achievements
- Ability to effectively communicate
- Personal attributes and accomplishments
- Letters of recommendation (degree-seeking students only)
- Graduate Management Admission Test or Graduate Record Exam (degree seeking students only, and if required)
The Admissions Process
Applications to SBNM are accepted for the August, October, January, March, and May start terms. SBNM has a rolling admissions process, and there are no strict application deadlines. However, you are encouraged to apply well in advance of the term you wish to begin. SBNM admissions staff will keep in close contact with you throughout the admission process. Specific admission requirements depend on if you apply as a degree-seeking or non-degree seeking student.
