    NOTE: Neither the GRE, nor the GMAT, are required for entrance to the Lindsey Online MBA if waiver qualifications apply (see below). However, drive, motivation, and curiosity most definitely are!

    1. Complete the Graduate Admission Application form, which must be submitted online with non-refundable fees of USD 35.00.
    2. Submit official undergraduate transcripts from regionally accredited institutions documenting the completion of an undergraduate degree.
    3. Submit GRE or GMAT scores taken with the last five years. (Required minimum scores: GRE – 150/Verbal, 150/Quantitative Reasoning, 3.5/Analytical Writing; GMAT – 550)
    4. Students who have not taken undergraduate courses in accounting, economics, and statistics prior to application to the program will be required to take such courses or will be required to demonstrate competency in these areas by examination.


  3. GRE/GMAT Waiver:
  4. In order to be considered for admission to the M.B.A. program without submission of a GRE or GMAT score, the student must meet the following qualification:

    • Earned an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale)

  5. International Student Application Procedures for Online Programs:
  6. An international student’s success will rest on the ability to understand, read, write, and speak English as all classes in the program are delivered in English. Thus in addition to the application materials required of students from the United States, international students who are applying for admission to online programs must send an official copy of their TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores to the college’s Office of Online Education.

    International students applying to a graduate program must take and submit scores for the TOEFL or the IELTS (International English Language Testing System). The minimum acceptable score for the TOEFL is 550 for the paper-based test or a total score of 79 or above with section scores of 21 on writing and 19 on reading on the Internet-based test (iBT). However, a minimum score of 80 iBT is required for the M.B.A. program. The minimum acceptable composite score on the IELTS is 6.5.

    Students who fail to meet the minimum score may still be considered for admission but will be required to successfully complete a provisional ESL (English as a Second Language) course before being officially accepted into the program and enrolling in classes.


  7. Transfer of Credit:
  8. The program will accept up to nine credit hours in transfer for equivalent courses from regionally accredited institutions of higher education.

  1. Exit Requirements for the Online Master’s in Business Administration
  2. MBA students are required to take the ETS MBA Major Field Test in order to graduate.
