Master of Business Administration (MBA) Admission Requirements

In order to be admitted to the MBA program into regular status, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Prior admission to the Graduate School
  2. An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher
  3. Completion of the Common Professional Component courses or BUS 555.
  4. Score of 450 or higher on your Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). (The GMAT requirement is waived for applicants who have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher for the Common Professional Component courses.)

Applicants who have not completed the Common Professional Component courses may be considered for provisional admission. Applicants with an overall undergraduate GPA and/or cumulative GPA on the Common Professional Component courses of less than 3.00 but more than 2.4999 may also be considered for provisional admission. Please contact the graduate coordinator for more information.

Common Professional Component

An underlying assumption of the ENMU MBA degree is students who enter the program have the academic background that would enable them to successfully complete the degree. Students with deficiencies will be required to demonstrate competency in the deficient area before being permitted to register for a graduate course that requires that base knowledge.

The requirements of the Common Professional Component (also known as the Common Body of Knowledge) for the MBA degree are the following ENMU undergraduate courses or comparable courses:

ACCT 201 Introduction to Financial Accounting 3
ACCT 202 Introduction to Managerial Accounting 3
BUS 230 Legal Environment of Business 3
ECON 222 Principles of Microeconomics 3
FIN 201 Principles of Finance 3
MGT 201 Principles of Management 3
MKT 201 Principles of Marketing 3
STAT 213 Statistical Methods 4

The COB will accept various forms for documentation of the necessary competencies. You should consult with the graduate coordinator to determine how to meet your leveling requirements.

Transferring MBA Coursework from Other Institutions

  • ENMU accepts your graduate transfer credit only from institutions or programs professionally accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) or the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
  • You must submit a request to the graduate coordinator, identifying relevant courses she or he wishes to transfer.
  • Your request for transfer credits must be approved by course content specialists in the College of Business, the graduate coordinator, and the dean of the Graduate School as part of your official degree plan.
  • You cannot transfer more than 9 graduate credits toward your MBA degree.
  • The transfer credits have to be within the six-year limitation for receipt of a master's degree and have not satisfied a previous degree.
