Application Requirements

Students must possess a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution.

We do NOT require students to take the GMAT exam but it will be taken into consideration with your file if you have completed the exam.


  1. Your official transcript showing a conferred bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA of 2.75
  2. Current resume or vita showing 1-2 years of work experience
  3. Two current letters of recommendation (submitted via the online form or by mailing this form)
  4. Address the questions in your Statement of Intent
  5. Pay the $50 application fee (International Students $150)

Please make every effort to package as many of your application materials (Resume/Vita, Letters of Recommendation, Statement of Intent) together in order to speed up the review process. If you cannot put all of your materials together, please be sure to submit your application first so we have information to match up with subsequent mail or emails that we receive.

Application materials can be mailed to this address:

How are applicants selected?

Candidates are expected to provide evidence of their ability to achieve success in a graduate business program. Areas of measurement include but are not limited to:

  • Success as an undergraduate student demonstrated by continuous improvement in their academic performance.
  • A cumulative GPA of 2.75 or better (4.0 scale) in all previous college work meets this requirement.
  • Since a high undergraduate GPA is not necessarily an indicator of business success, Concordia considers all applicant's academic accomplishments on an individual basis.
  • Success as a member of the business community.
  • Success as a responsible and contributing member of society.
  • Success as demonstrated by moral and ethical leadership.
