  • An application with the $50 application fee (nonrefundable)Student studying classroom
  • Official transcripts of all previous college work
  • One letter of recommendation
  • Statement of Purpose Essay
  • Immunization Records (required after acceptance)

Students who possess undergraduate degrees in a non-business field, or who do not have significant business-related work experience, will be required to take a one credit hour MBA Fundamentals course at the start of their program.

Please note that the Master of Business Administration program has a rolling admission deadline.


An applicant's admission status is one of the following:

  • Regular. Students whose applications are complete and who are accepted by the Graduate Admissions Committee without condition are admitted as regular graduate students.
  • Conditional. In reviewing a candidate's application, the Graduate Admissions Committee may recommend that a student be accepted on a conditional basis. The letter of acceptance will contain the conditions that must be met before the student can be reclassified for regular status.
  • Non-degree. This status is assigned to those students who are taking graduate courses, but whose applications are not yet complete. Admission as a non-degree student does not necessarily mean that the student will be accepted as a regular student when and if the application is made for such status.  No more than 6 hours in non-degree status may be applied toward the master’s degree.  Admission to non-degree status requires the submission of official undergraduate transcripts.

Transfer Credit

Normally, six credits of appropriate graduate-level course work, earned within five years of entry into the Husson program, may be transferred from an accredited institution, if the grades earned in such course work are "B" or better.

In special circumstances, an individual who has begun a graduate management program at another accredited institution may transfer up to nine credits from that program if those credits have been earned within five years of the date of entry to the Husson program.
