DescriptionAdmission criteria vary by program. In general, in addition to the standard minimum requirements and satisfactory exam scores, the Graduate School of Business' admission office seeks applicants who can demonstrate that they have played exceptional or distinctive roles in their work experiences (2+years for the Evening MBA, 8+ years for EMBA). Successful applicants also will demonstrate a strong desire to learn new skills and to commit to graduate study. Chapman MBA programs also require applicants to articulate their motivation for pursuing the MBA in a statement of goals and to submit a current resume with the application. A personal interview is required for our EMBA program. Applicants should demonstrate the motivation required to successfully complete the degree and to translate their new knowledge into career advancement.

Transfer PolicyA student may receive permission to transfer up to six semester hours of graduate credit towards his or her degree program, if: 1) The courses were taken at the graduate level at an accredited college or university; 2) the courses were not introductory or "survey" in nature; 3) the student earned grades of "B" or higher in the courses; 4) the courses are judged by the Department Chair, College Dean, Graduate School Dean and Program Manager to be relevant to the student’s degree program; 5) the courses were not core courses; 6) the credits were not used toward another degree; and 7) all course work, including transfer credits, must be completed within six years immediately preceding FIU's awarding of the MBA degree. Credits are not transferable, however, until the student has earned 15 semester hours of credit in a College of Business Administration graduate degree program. In addition, transfer credit will not be granted for "core" courses in the program.
