What qualities are you seeking in an applicant?

First and foremost, we are seeking motivated students who have a strong desire to learn the fundamentals of business. While there are no “minimum requirements,” we are looking for applicants who are in a strong academic standing, have a competitive GPA, and demonstrate a drive for the future.

Do I need any pre-requisites, recommendations or test scores?

MBI is open to all non-business rising juniors, seniors, recent graduates and working professionals, and there are no pre-requisites to attend. Recommendations are not required, nor are standardized tests like the GRE or GMAT. Simply complete the application as directed. You will have the opportunity to upload a resume if you have one, however it is not required and will not count against you in the acceptance decision.

Are there any scholarships available to attend MBI?

Partial scholarships are available, and a MBI student selected for a scholarship may receive up to $2,000 for the program. Before you can apply for a scholarship you must first submit an application to a MBI program. You may then submit a scholarship application through the admissions website.
