Concordia graduate admission representatives are here to help make the application process fast and convenient. Feel free to contact the MBA Admission Counselor:
All documents relating to admission should be submitted to Concordia University’s Office of Graduate Admission and Student Services prior to the deadline for your anticipated term of enrollment.
To be considered for admission to an MBA program, applicants must have earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution and submit the following documents:
Applicant's must show evidence of ability to achieve success in a graduate program through the following:
Students do not need to be admitted to their degree program in order to register for their initial semester. Students are placed on Pending/Student-at-Large guest status until all required documentation has been received and may attend classes for one semester. The Pending/Student-at-Large status does not apply to international students, and does not provide financial aid eligibility.
In addition to the above requirements, international students must meet the following:
English Language Proficiency
A score of at least 72 (internet-based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or 6.0 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) must be obtained. A Michigan test score of at least 85 or a minimum of 61 on the Pearson Test of English (PTE) may also be accepted. Alternatively, a prospective student may submit proof of successful completion of Level 112 at an ELS Language School (ELS) or certificate of Completion of Program from an English Language Institute (ELI), along with a recommendation of the program director. [International students who have earned an advanced degree from an accredited institution in the United States, or students from an international English-speaking university (in which the lingua franca is English) need not submit English language scores.]
Foreign Transcript Evaluation
Foreign transcripts must be evaluated by a Concordia approved international credentialing service. Concordia accepts summary evaluations from WES (World Education Services), ECE (Educational Credential Evaluators) or AACRAO (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admission Officers). Students who want transfer credit towards a Concordia degree must request a course-by-course version of the foreign transcript evaluation.
International students must qualify for regular admission to a degree program to enroll in coursework. All documents should be submitted at least six to eight weeks prior to the student’s expected date of entry. I-20 forms will be issued after University acceptance is granted. The program length may vary for each student.
