Prerequisites

The Midland MBA is a rigorous, fast-paced program that will challenge students as they work through subjects for the first time and/or return to subjects previously introduced for a deeper examination to achieve mastery.  However, in an effort to build a diverse class and professional network for students, prior business coursework or training is not required.

Previous Work

GMAT: The graduate management admission test (GMAT) is not required for admission to the Midland MBA. If you have already completed this exam and wish to send your scores, we will consider them as part of your application, but find the exam is not the only predictor of success in our application-focused MBA.

Previous business courses: Prior undergraduate training in business is not required for admission to the Midland MBA. Previous coursework in core subjects may be applied to the first four courses of the MBA under the Prior Credit path.

A bachelor's degree in any field is required to start a master's degree program.

Prior Credit

In four core courses, some fundamentals will be addressed that students with a robust business background may not need to revisit. Instead, these students may choose to have a lighter load in terms 1 and 2 and simply complete a 1-credit path through the core course to bring their understanding of the subject up to a master's level.

Students who have completed relevant course work within the past 7 years and earned a B (3.0) or higher in the course may be awarded 2 credits per approved class toward the required 3 credits in the comparable Midland course.  These credits will be awarded upon completion of a 1-credit project with a Midland instructor.

Once accepted to the program, students interested in the prior credit path will be asked to send in the Prior Credit Form with an official copy of any relevant transcripts.

Transfer Credit

The Midland MBA is designed as a cohort-based curriculum, allowing students to progress together through core concepts as they develop broad business training. 

Students who have completed previous graduate level coursework at other instutitions may be eligible, however, to transfer in previous credit earned. Students who have completed relevant course work within the past 7 years and earned a B (3.0) or higher in the course should submit the Transfer Credit Form and copies of any relevant transcripts for a personalized transfer evaluation.
