Frequently Asked Questions: Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree in Management

How long does it take to complete the M.B.A. degree?

Do I need a GMAT or GRE to enter the program?

In most instances no, however, your GPA must meet the standard 3.0 GPA for Graduate Exams to be waived. Visit the Admissions department for more information.

What do I need to apply?

Official transcripts from the college/colleges where you received your bachelor’s degree, two professional references (professors or work supervisor), an updated resume, and a one to two page personal statement or writing sample that states your motivation for acquiring an M.B.A., and of course $50. Visit the Admissions department for more information.

I prefer online courses, but I would also like the option to take certain courses on campus. Is this permissible?

Yes, many of our students prefer to do a “split schedule”, that is they prefer to take courses onsite and online at the same time. We pride ourselves at being able to accommodate your educational needs. Read more about our M.B.A. program here.

Each have built their corporate credentials in diverse industries and have undertaken numerous management roles and responsibilities, throughout their careers. As a team they have a broad range of business experiences and analytical perspectives on contemporary issues that will prove to be invaluable to you.

Shouldn't I choose an M.B.A. that specializes in my current career industry?

The problem with specializing your M.B.A. is that you never know what the future may hold for you. Most people living in the USA change jobs every five years and do so 15 times in their life time.  By choosing a specific M.B.A. such as Health Services Management, Supply-Chain, or Accounting, you may find your M.B.A. is no longer relevant or limits your career options. An M.B.A. degree in management can easily transition into any career or industry because management is a universal. Through the M.B.A. degree curriculum at Berkeley College, you gain the management skills that will help you in any industry.
