Program Admissions


The Business Administration MBA  Program is open to all applicants, regardless of the undergraduate field of study. However, the following criteria must be met:

  • Baccalaureate Degree: Graduate students must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited university or institution.
  • GMAT: Students must have a minimum score of 400 in the Graduate Management Admissions Test, and an index score of 1000 or better.
  • Writing Sample: Prospective students must submit a writing sample to determine if there is a need for developmental course work.
  • Leveling Courses: Students that do not have prior business course work will have to take the following courses. Students with undergraduate degrees are exempt from this requirement:
    • Financial Accounting (ACCTG 201 or ACCTG 501)
    • Business Statistics (BUSAD 265)
    • Microeconomics (ECON 201 or ECON 501)
    • Finance (FIN 330 or FIN 501)
    • Management (MGMT 201 or MGMT 501)
    • Marketing (MKTG 340 or MKTG 501)

Leveling Courses

Students with non-business undergraduate degrees are required to take leveling courses designed to facilitate the transition to graduate-level business courses. Students that earn less than a “C” in any leveling course will be dismissed from the program.

Graduate students are required to complete all leveling course requirements before enrolling in the first 500-level courses. In some instances, a student will be permitted to enroll in 500-level courses while completing the final leveling courses.


A current listing of GMAT testing sites may be found here. GMAT scores must be sent to CSU-Pueblo by the code 05XN225.
