Regular Admission Requirements

The candidate’s performance on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) and the candidate’s undergraduate work will be used to determine admission status. The GMAT or GRE is not required for students who earned a business degree at an AACSB accredited business school and maintained an overall undergraduate GPA of 3.15.

GMAT/GRE waivers will be allowed for admission into the Georgia WebMBA® for students with significant middle-upper level management experience or a master's degree. Applicants must file a petition to be considered for a GMAT/GRE waiver. Please contact the Director of Graduate Programs in Business for a copy of the GMAT/GRE waiver petition guidelines.

Applicants may enter Fall or Spring Semester only. Admission is granted after meeting the admission standards.

Students admitted into the WebMBA program will be required to have at least two years of documented related work experience.
