MBA & MAcc Admission

Students from all academic disciplines and all levels of professional post-graduate experience are encouraged to apply to be part of a fall cohort group. Admission to the Eberhardt MBA and MAcc programs is competitive and based on criteria which indicate a high promise of success. Performance in your prior coursework, official GMAT (or GRE) scores, letters of recommendation(s) and any post-graduate professional or managerial work experience will all be considered in your admission decision.


Round 1: Fall Priority Date (Full-time MBA and MAcc): JANUARY 15
Round 2: Fall On-time (Full-time MBA and MAcc): MARCH 1
Round 3: Fall Late (Full-time MBA and MAcc): JUNE 1 

Applications submitted after the posted key application dates will be considered on a rolling, space-available basis; therefore, a review of your application and the availability of merit-based financial assistance (full-time MBA and MAcc Programs only) cannot be guaranteed after these dates.


Your completed application portfolio must be submitted before the Graduate Business Admissions Committee can render a final decision on your application. Please review the required forms, documents and steps to completing your application quickly and efficiently:

  • A completed BusinessCAS application
  • Two letters of recommendation (recommended, but not required)
  • One to two years of work experience (preferred, but not required)
  • Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended
  • An official Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) Score*
  • International applicants should closely review the Requirements for Graduate International Applicants page for additional document and testing requirements

STEP 1: Submit your application including the required application fee and verifications by the appropriate date for the round you wish to be considered.

STEP 2: Send your official transcripts (or transcript evaluation) to the Centralized Application System. Please review BusinessCAS transcript help center page closely for instruction on sending your domestic transcripts. International transcripts should be sent directly to Pacific's Graduate Admission Processing office. Contact the Graduate Admission Processing office,, if you have any questions or need clarification.

STEP 3: Arrange to have your GMAT* scores sent to University of the Pacific. Be sure to use the proper program code for your intended program (i.e. full-time MBA or MAcc).

Please visit for more information on the GMAT and for more information on the GRE. The GMAT is the preferred test but a GRE score (code=2451) can be accepted if official test results are still available. The GMAT or GRE must have been taken 5 years prior to the date of your completed application.
