Northeastern Illinois University offers two excellent graduate degree programs in business - the Master of Business Administration (MBA) and the Master of Science in Accounting (MSA). You'll take classes in the most diverse cultural environment in the Midwest - an important advantage for developing effective management skills in an increasingly global and multicultural world. A hallmark of both programs is their flexibility, which allows you to earn your degree even while you pursue your current career:
||Evening and Weekend classes |
||Full-time or Part-time enrollment |
||Business or non-business undergraduate degree accepted for admission |
||Small classes and individual attention, to challenge you to learn and grow|
||The most affordable MBA and MSA in the Chicago area|
Your first step toward being considered for admission to the MBA or MSA programs is to submit your application porfolio to the Northeastern Illinois University College of Graduate Studies and Research, who will forward it to the College of Business and Management for review and decision by the Admissions Committee. You can download application materials from the College of Graduate Studies and Research.
|The basis of the Admissions Committee evaluates applications: |
||Transcripts of all prior undergraduate and graduate course work;|
||Your performance on the Graduate Management Admission Test [GMAT];|
||A one-page typewritten statement of Career Goals and Objectives; |
||Two letters of recommendation; and |
||Any other evidence [such as work experience] that will help the committee assess your qualifications.|
To be considered for full admission to graduate business programs, you should have a GMAT score of at least 450 and an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher (on a 4.0 scale). Conditional admission may be granted to students whose GMAT score or undergraduate GPA are lower than these thresholds but who are otherwise well-qualified. International students must, in addition, score 550 or higher (213 computer-scoring) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), supply an evaluation of transcript materials by Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc., and must satisfy visa requirements.
