leadership roles in global business, industry, and commerce. These professionals are
highly versed in both academic and professional competencies, have extensive corporate
internship experiences, and are ready to meet the demands of leadership in the dynamic
Admission Requirements to the Lower Division of the Professional MBA Program
Students formally enrolled in SBI’s Pre-Business program and have transitioned into
the BS programs who elect to pursue the Professional MBA must apply to the University
graduate school for admission. To be accepted, they must satisfy the following criteria:
• At least 90 hours of university course credit,
• Cumulative University GPA of 3.0 or higher,
• At least two (external) internships, and
• Take the GMAT (for students applying for Fall 2010 or subsequent admission).
Those students whose efforts to gain acceptance into the Professional MBA prove unsuccessful
retain their otherwise satisfactory standing in the BS program.
Note: Students transferring into the Professional MBA program may be required to take additional
courses to satisfy certain business related prerequisites and competencies for entering
the program. These “additional” courses will not count toward fulfilling any of the
other requirements of the Professional MBA Program.
