Five Years Experience

Eligible candidates must have an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university and at least five years of professional work experience. In almost all cases, years of professional work experience are counted from the date of earning an undergraduate degree. Since the EMBA screening committee uses your resume to identify eligible candidates, resumes submitted need to contain dates degrees were awarded in addition to dates of employment. Eligible candidates must also submit transcripts that verify degrees earned and show grades in coursework. Grades in coursework may also be considered in the decision process for acceptance into the EMBA program. An advantage of entering the EMBA program compared to the MBA program is that acceptance into the EMBA program gives a waiver of both the GMAT test score and all eleven basic program mini-courses.
