Admission to the MBA program is determined by the Admissions Committee relevant to the following criteria.

1.  Students must hold a baccalaureate degree in business or related fields (Agribusiness, Finance, Accounting, Economics, etc) from an accredited institution, with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.  Applications without this are still encouraged to apply but will be asked to demonstrate competency in 13 core concept areas including management, marketing, finance, accounting and other core business principles.  Provisional admission can be granted, but competencies must be demonstrated prior to beginning the program and can be demonstrated through academic record, on-line preparatory courses, testing, or professional work experience and certifications.

2.  For full consideration, the deadline for receipt of applications is April 15 of each year.  Applications can be considered after this deadline on a space available basis.  Applications received after the deadline will be reviewed on a first come, first served basis.

3.  Students will be admitted to the MBA program only when they have completed all of the application requirements and only in Fall term of each year.

4.  Students must be fully admitted to the MBA program and as an EOU graduate student+ prior to enrolling in MBA classes.
