Graduate Admission Requirements

Samford's Brock School of Business welcomes applications from students and professionals with solid academic abilities and managerial potential.

Academic ability is evaluated on the basis of undergraduate and graduate academic records, a competitive score on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and academic recognition. Applicants must have a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution prior to enrolling in the program.  Managerial potential is evaluated on the basis of the applicant's work experience and professional recognition. Work experience is preferred, but not required. Involvement in continuing education and extracurricular, community and church activities are considered as part of the admission process.

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. Applicants are informed of the application decision by email. Once an applicant is admitted to the program, he/she has an individual advising and orientation session with a graduate program advisor to review program information and policies as well as to determine the individual course plan of study.
