MBA and MAcc Admissions

Admission requirements for the M.B.A. and MAcc programs are the same and require admission to the Graduate School as well as completion of the following steps:

  1. Apply to the Graduate School. The application can be found on-line by clicking on 'how to apply' at www.isu.edu/graduate. The application requires a fee. It also requires that your official transcripts be sent to the Graduate School office at:
    • Graduate School
    • 921 South 8th Avenue, Stop 8075
    • Pocatello, ID 83209
    Please check with the Graduate School if you have any problems with the application, fees, or transcripts at (208) 282-2150.
  2. Send two letters of recommendation, a copy of your resume, and a Statement of Purpose (a page or less stating why you want to earn a M.B.A. or MAcc) to the M.B.A. office via mail OR email to one of the addresses below:
    • M.B.A. Office • mba@isu.edu
    • 921 South 8th Avenue, Stop 8020

  3. Take the GMAT or GRE and request that your scores be sent to ISU. The GMAT registration information can be found at www.mba.com; GRE registration information is at www.prometric.com.

Admission is granted only to students showing a high promise for success. The College of Business uses various measurements to determine this likelihood. However, the minimum requirement for admission is based on the sum of the following formula:

200 x GPA of your last 60 credit hours + GMAT score > 1150 or
200 x GPA of your last 60 credit hours + GRE average of quantitative & verbal score > 1150

As an example, a student with a 3.0 upper division GPA would need to score a minimum of 550 on the GMAT to be accepted into our program.

The GMAT and GRE scores will be sent to the College of Business. Please allow 30 days for score to post.
