Go to the Graduate College website to start the online application (or paper) process. Use the directions provided there.
Required materials to submit with application:
(A) Required Test scores – GMAT or GRE, TOEFL (for international students) ****
Minimum GMAT score is 400 (or equivalent GRE score). The full application package will be considered and an occasional exception may be made for candidates who are exceptionally strong in all other areas.
(B) Transcripts of all university/community college work ****
(C) Two letters of recommendation speaking to the applicant’s work or academic success and/or potential for success as a graduate student.
For a full-time student, one recommendation should come from a professor who can speak to your potential success as a graduate student. The other letter can come from either another professor, or someone who can attest to your successful job performance.
For the professional MBA student, at least one of the letters of recommendation should come from a current or former employer who can speak to the quality of your work experience and organizational impact. This is particularly critical if you are requesting a review for a GMAT waiver. The other letter can come from another professional contact or a former professor who can also speak to your potential success as an MBA student.
(D) Letter of Intent (typed, double-spaced, not to exceed two pages in length). It should address--
a. Why are you interested in an RU MBA, and why now?
b. What are your short and long-term goals in seeking this degree? How do you expect the RU MBA to help you
achieve these goals?
c. If you are requesting a review for a GMAT waiver, state your request for the review in this letter, and briefly explain why you believe you meet the criteria. (Attach the GMAT Waiver Request form (PDF) to your application)
(E) Other materials to attach: Resume, Foundation Evaluation Summary Form (PDF), GMAT Waiver Request (optional)
(F) Application Fee submitted with application
****Applicants who do not meet all the above admission criteria (e.g. fall short on GPA or below certain test scores) may still apply, but evaluation of such applicants may require additional compensatory application materials (e.g. an interview with program area faculty; and/or documentation of relevant academic experience; and/or professional work or life experiences that attest to personal growth and potential in graduate studies, beyond that represented by test scores or GPA). You will be contacted after you apply if we wish for you to submit additional materials.
