Online Master of Business Administration

Admission Requirements

The admission requirements and processes for the USF Online MBA are identical to that of the on campus Professional MBA. The Online MBA attracts candidates from a wide variety of academic and professional backgrounds. Admission decisions are based on the strength of the application as a whole. Outstanding qualities in one area may compensate for weakness in another. Competitive applicants tend to have strong GMAT or GRE scores, several years of quality work experience, and undergraduate GPAs 3.3 or higher.

Application Requirements

All candidates seeking admission to the OMBA must submit the following:

  • Online application and $30 application fee
  • Transcript showing completion of a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited higher education institution in the U.S. or foreign equivalent
  • GMAT or GRE score*
  • Statement of purpose
  • Resume
  • Three reference letters (at least one must be from a professional reference)

*The GMAT/GRE requirement may be waived for candidates that meet certain conditions. Please submit a GMAT/GRE waiver request with your complete application in order to be considered for a waiver.

COVID-19 GMAT/GRE Exam Waiver: GMAT and GRE testing is back underway in many test centers around the globe. In addition, online testing is available. Please see www.mba.com or www.ets.org for more information on testing options. If an applicant is unable to test, they may request a waiver and provide a written justification explaining why they are not able to test currently.

Additional details regarding admission requirements and application deadlines may be found in the graduate catalog.
