Doctoral

Admission

Admission to the doctoral program is highly selective, and depends upon many individual factors. As we review applications, we look for evidence that students have the intellectual creativity and personal passion to become top researchers in their field. Creativity and passion can be expressed in many different ways, and through many different accomplishments, we look forward to hearing from each applicant about their own unique qualifications for the doctoral program at Bauer College.

Admission Criteria

Our goal is to produce top researchers who will be placed at the best research universities in the world. Many factors can indicate that a student has this potential, a few of the factors we consider are:

  • Academic Performance
  • Letters of Recommendation
  • GMAT or GRE Scores
  • Statement of Purpose

In general, we are looking for a combination of outstanding scholarship at nationally/internationally known universities, plus strong recommendation letters and a statement of purpose that reflects a deep commitment to research. Although we do not have a minimum GMAT scores, our typical applicant has a GMAT score above 650. Excellent proficiency in English is expected.
