Applying to Tippie's business analytics programs

Application requirements, fees, and instructions for the master's degree and certificate programs are slightly different. In both cases, a bachelor's degree from a U.S. college or university, or an equivalent degree from another country, is required.

International students on F-1 or J-1 visas should note that both programs are part time, and visa documents (I-20 or DS-2019) will not be provided.

Minimum requirements

You need to meet these two criteria to be considered for admission:

  • A completed bachelor's degree or higher
  • Undergraduate GPA of at least 2.5 (certificate) or 3.0* (master's)

See below for a full list of what's needed to apply.

When to apply

We're switching to a new application system, so the application for the certificate and the master's will be offline while we get everything working right. We'll start taking applications again on February 13, 2017.

  • Summer session—April 30, 2017

GPA requirement exceptions

If your undergrad GPA is below the 3.0 minimum for the master's, apply to the certificate program instead. The university lets you use the grades earned in your Business Analytics Certificate courses to meet the GPA requirement.
