MBA Preparatory Certificate

The M.B.A. preparatory studies program is available to students in any major who plan to pursue an M.B.A. after graduation from UMBC. This curriculum is designed to meet the coursework requirements for entry into the M.B.A. program at many graduate business schools; in particular, the Robert H. Smith School of Business at University of Maryland, College Park. Completion of this curriculum, however, does not guarantee entry into any graduate business program. Students should note that most business graduate schools require the GMAT, and many will not consider a grade below ‘B’; in assessing entry requirements. Increasingly, business schools are requiring business work experience before admittance into a master’s program.
