How to Apply

Before applying, you should review the program overview page to learn more about the three versions of the program to choose from, including two degree options and a certificate option.

Minimum Admission Requirements

To be considered for admission, you must have a:

  • Baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university
  • Cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 2.75 (on a 4.0 scale). Note: If your GPA is lower than 2.75, we may still consider your application but you should consider submitting Optional Materials (see more information on the pages linked below to learn more about the application process).

Work experience considerations. The UW MBA Consortium program is designed for professionals who have experience working in a professional environment. We strongly recommend that candidates have at least two years of post-baccalaureate professional work experience, preferably with career progression, to be considered for admission to the program. The admissions team will consider candidates who have limited or no professional work experience when they can demonstrate exceptional performance in other metrics that are considered during the application review.
