Your Future is Waiting. Right Here. Right Now.

The Mason MBA's highly competitive acceptance rate is based on a number of factors: your fit within the program and potential contribution to a collegial learning environment, relevant work experience, leadership potential, letters of recommendation, and a competitive GMAT or GRE score.

Eligibility Requirements

  • An earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education, or international equivalent, verified from official transcripts
  • A minimum of two years of full-time, post-baccalaureate professional employment
  • One college-level calculus course prior to enrolling (recommended but not required)

Application Requirements

  • Online application and application fee
  • A current résumé
  • Transcripts from all colleges or universities attended. The Office of Graduate Admissions does not require official transcripts for your application to be reviewed for admission. We require unofficial copies of your transcripts for application review. If admitted however, all applicants are required to submit official transcripts prior to the last day to add/drop courses in their first term.
    • Unofficial transcripts should be uploaded to your online application
    • Official electronic transcripts can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We request that you do not submit any documents to the program prior to submitting the online application. If you submit your application first, it will make the matching process of your documents (transcripts and test scores) easier and faster. Your résumé, recommendations, and essays must be uploaded and submitted with the online application.

No portion of the portfolio is weighted more than another; the admissions committee considers the entire application to ensure that they have a complete profile of a candidate’s professional and academic qualifications.

Early application is advised since enrollment is limited.
