MBA Program Admission Requirements - Master of Business Administration - University of Central Missouri

Admission Requirements

To be admitted to the MBA program, candidates must have a qualifying score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (or Graduate Record Exam), a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA, and a minimum admission score calculated as a combination of the undergraduate GPA and GMAT score.

2.50 (on a 4.0 scale)

Minimum GMAT Score Required


Minimum Admission Score


The GMAT test description, expense, testing locations and registration dates are available from the GMAT website.

In lieu of a GMAT score, a predicted GMAT score, computed from GRE Verbal and Quantitative scores, can be used.  The Writing component is not necessary.  For more information about the GRE, see the GRE web site.


The admission score is calculated as 200 x GPA + GMAT score; thus, for candidates with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3, the required minimum GMAT score is 400.  For candidates with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 2.50, the required minimum GMAT score is 500.


Note: Applicants who have earned an undergraduate business degree from an AACSB-accredited business program with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.75 are not required to provide a GMAT score.  This waiver is based solely on the undergraduate GPA.


To apply, use the online application for admission to Graduate Studies and specify Master of Business Administration as the desired program.

International applicants must meet additional requirements for admission to the university.
