VERMILLION, S.D. – The Beacom School of Business at the University of South Dakota and the Graduate School announce a change in application requirements for the Master of Business Administration and Master of Professional Accountancy graduate degree programs. This change is designed to reduce barriers that accomplished professionals may encounter when applying for advanced business degrees.
Individuals with an earned doctoral degree (including medical professionals, attorneys, educators and others) are no longer required to take the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) as a condition of application. In addition, potential students who have achieved specific scores on other entrance exams, such as the GRE, LSAT, or MCAT may have the GMAT requirement waived. This waiver is also available for those with an undergraduate degree from an AACSB accredited Business School.
The goal of the Beacom School of Business is to make high quality graduate business degrees more accessible to working professionals. Flexible degree options can be completed online, in person, or a combination, making them ideal for busy professionals.
