PMSA 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 Professional MSA program, you must generally meet the following requirements:
- Bachelor’s degree from accredited institution
- Three or more years of professional work experience in the sport industry
- GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Two letters of recommendation
- Current resume
- Official/certified transcripts (sealed) from all institutions of higher education attended
- Professional statement
- No GMAT or GRE required
- TOEFL or IELTS required if English is not your first language
A maximum of six transfer credits are accepted from AACSB-accredited business schools or colleges. Some restrictions may apply.
Professional 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 five 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. 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 November 30, 2021, for maximum consideration. These applications are reviewed first, and decisions will be announced by December 17 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 2023 cohort.
