Frequently Asked Questions about the Business Leadership Degree Program

Q: How is an MS in Business Leadership different from an MBA?

A: Today's senior managers need to be people managers, not just subject matter experts. They need to be able to hire well and then develop staff in order to build successful teams.  The Business Leadership program focuses on those processes and skills that help create successful leaders. 

Q: When is the application deadline?

A: Since we have 4 semesters, we allow rolling admissions and accept applications throughout the year.

Q: What are the requirements to apply to the MS in Business Leadership Program?

A: For your application you are required to submit a resume, personal statement, two letters of recommendation, and your official undergraduate transcripts. We make admissions decisions based on a formula score which considers your GPA, work experience, recommendations, and quality of your personal statement. Please see here for the formula details.

Q: Do I need a GRE or GMAT score in order to apply to the Business Leadership Program?

A: We do not require any test scores for admission.

Q: Will I be able to transfer courses I've already taken at other institutions?        

A: After you have completed your application and been accepted we will do an official transcript evaluation. We will accept up to 6 credits from another college.
