Once Graduate Studies has received your application, GMAT or GRE score, official transcript(s), application fee, and other required documents, your file will be provided to the MBA office for an admissions decision.  The MBA program admits new students on a rolling basis, so you will receive an admissions decision within a few weeks after all of your required documentation has been received.  Upon acceptance, proof of immunization will be required prior to registration.
