To succeed in the IMBA, you need strong academic ability and experience in the world of business.
The following key areas are reviewed in determining eligibility for the program.
- Academic record—Your academic record should clearly demonstrate your ability to complete a rigorous academic program. We consider the difficulty of your major and the reputation of your previous institution, as well as your grade-point average. A bachelor's degree is required. A GMAT score may required if the admission committee feels the academic record is not sufficiently strong to indicate the ability to complete the program.
- Work experience—To gain the most benefit from the program, our students need to understand life in the business world. We expect you to have at least four years of full-time work experience. We also look for professional experiences that show your ability to succeed in the business environment.
- Leadership—Your leadership potential should be evident through involvement in community and special activities as well as achievements in the workplace.
- Communication—All classes are taught in English. Evidence of ability to communicate in English is required. Candidates must also participate in an admission interview with a representative of the Tippie School of Management.
