Application Requirements and Deadlines
OHIO's College of Business takes a holistic approach to considering a candidate’s application package, which means we'll consider all parts of your application so you have an opportunity to highlight your strengths.
To be admitted to Ohio University's MBA/MSA dual-degree program, you must generally meet the following requirements:
- Bachelor’s degree from accredited institution
- 1-3 years of professional sport-related work experience, including internships
- GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Three letters of recommendation
- Current resume
- Official/certified transcripts (sealed) from all institutions of higher education
- Professional goals statement
- GMAT/GRE is not required
- TOEFL or IELTS required if English is not your first language
MBA/MSA cohorts start in August. Admission to this program is selective, with a limited number of seats available for qualified candidates. We seat our cohort through three rounds of admission with dates listed below. Admission decisions are made after each round of admission, meaning that fewer seats are available in later rounds. Apply to the earliest round for maximum consideration for the Fall 2022 cohort. After you apply, you may be invited to interview for a spot in the program.
If you would like to join the cohort that will start the program in August 2022, apply by October 31, 2021, for maximum consideration. These applications are reviewed first and decisions will be announced by December 10 so you can start planning early for your future. If the cohort fills before the last round of admission, qualified candidates will be invited to interview for a seat in the Fall 2022 cohort.
