Admissions Policies

MBA Program Admission Requirements

To be considered for admission to the MBA Program, students must supply the following information. When this information is received, the Admissions Committee will act on the application.

  • A completed application form (Graduate Program Application)
  • A non-refundable $30.00 application fee that accompanies the application 
  • Official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended with an undergraduate cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. (Students with a lower GPA may apply for provisional admission based on additional documentation and approval of the Program Director.)
  • A professional résumé, summarizing life and work experiences
  • Two recommendation forms, preferably including at least one academic reference.
  • Applicants may be interviewed or asked to submit professional references.
  • Graduate credits earned at other regionally accredited institutions may be transferrable to Huntington University's Graduate Programs. Only graduate courses with a grade of B- (2.67) or above are transferable. Generally such credits must be no older than 10 years and must represent courses that can reasonably substitute for courses in the Huntington University Graduate Programs. Individual program directors determine the suitability of such courses for transfer credit and may deny transfer credit. Students will be asked to provide relevant materials for their transfer courses. Students in the Master of Business Administration Program may transfer in a maximum of 6 credit hours. Although credits may transfer, no transfer grades are recorded nor counted in the cumulative grade point average.
  • International Applicants
    • International applicants must provide a degree evaluation report documenting the U.S. equivalency of all international work and completion of a degree equivalent to a U.S. baccalaureate degree. The evaluation report must be sent directly from the approved evaluation agency to Huntington University. Huntington University prefers evaluations from World Education Services, Education Credential Evaluators, or InCred.
    • Huntington University will admit applicants holding an international 3-year Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution of U.S. equivalency who have earned a minimum of 90 post-secondary semester hours provided their academic preparation is sufficient for success in the MBA program. The major must be in a business-related field. Admission to the MBA program with a 3-year international degree is approved by the MBA program director, the business department chair, and the director of graduate programs.
    • Applicants from non-English speaking countries must provide a copy of their score from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).
      • International students who meet other academic requirements for admission to the University but score below 85 on the computer-based TOEFL iBT or 6.5 on the IELTS may have their admission deferred until they can provide evidence of adequate English language skills.
