Admission Criteria

Admission to the University at all levels is selective, and even more so at the College of Business. To be competitive, you must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Complete the entire primary and secondary, college-preparatory program in your country of residence.
  • Receive above-average and steady or improving grades throughout your secondary and/or university program. Students should demonstrate an average grade of B or above.
  • For international students for whom English is a second language, scores of 550 on the paper version and 80 on the international version of the TOEFL are advised.

Note: High schools and admissions offices in the United States often use a student's rank in their high school class and a calculated grade average (grade point average or GPA) in determining a student's academic qualifications. Once you apply, we will use your official transcripts to make similar comparisons and determine if you are eligible for admission and/or scholarships.
