Applicants are required to have earned at least a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university or a degree from a non-U.S. institution of higher education that is judged equivalent to a U.S. baccalaureate degree by the International Admissions office and have an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 (based on a 4-point scale) computed for all undergraduate credits from the applicant’s most recent baccalaureate degree.
A prospective student may apply at any time and should follow the general graduate application procedure for degree-seeking students (see Graduate Admission Requirements). Admission to the program is based on:
Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score of 500 or better. We also accept Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) scores with minimum target scores of 152 in both the verbal and math categories. A higher GPA may offset a slightly lower GMAT or GRE score and vice versa.
Successful completion of the following undergraduate courses at Boise State University (or equivalent courses from another accredited university): ACCT 205 Introduction to Financial Accounting, ACCT 206 Introduction to Managerial Accounting, BUSSTAT 207 Introduction to Business Analytics, and FINAN 303 Principles of Finance.
Fast Track admission waives the GMAT or GRE test requirement and the essay requirement for applicants who have graduated from a regionally accredited institution and achieved a 3.50/4.00 or better cumulative GPA in a non-STEM major or achieved a 3.30/4.00 or better cumulative GPA in a STEM major.
International graduate applicants must demonstrate their proficiency in English in order to be considered for admission to Boise State. There are several approved ways for applicants to demonstrate Englishproficiency. Please refer to the International Admissions Office website for current test score requirements.
