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 and any post-graduate professional or managerial work experience will all be considered in your admission decision.



          Round 1: Fall Priority Consideration (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 

Please note for part-time applicants: The June 1 (Round 3) deadline is considered on-time for the Professional MBA Program in Sacramento. Completed applications will generally be considered through August 1 or until the Fall part-time cohort is full.

Application and Supplemental Documents

Your completed application portfolio must be submitted before the Graduate Business Admissions Committee can render a final decision on your application. The required forms and documents include:

  • A completed online application (includes two essays and a resume)
  • 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 International applicants page for additional document requirements

You should submit a completed application including the $50 application fee and verifcations first. Next, send all supplemental documents to the Graduate Admissions Office by the appropriate application dates for your intended program. Applications received 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.

Decisions regarding admission and any awards of merit-based financial assistance (i.e. scholarship and/or graduate assistantship) for full-time applicants are made on a rolling basis usually within 3-4 weeks of application completion. You will be notified in writing immediately regarding your application and any merit-based award decisions.

*Please visit www.mba.com for more information on the GMAT and www.ets.org/gre/ for more information on the GRE. The GMAT is the preferred test but a GRE score can be accepted if official test results are still available. The GMAT or GRE must have been taken within the last 5 years of your application.
