Applying for Graduation
A student must apply for granting of the MBA degree through the MBA Office at least one term before the date upon which the degree is expected to be conferred. An audit will be completed of all courses and grades before a diploma is ordered. Degrees are conferred in December, May, and August.
Applications received before the specified time will be processed for the desired graduation ceremony, assuming all requirements are met. Applications received after this time will be processed for the next graduation ceremony. Note that although degrees may be conferred in August, there is no graduation ceremony at that time. August graduates may choose to attend graduation ceremonies the following December.
*4+1 Students: Please remember to also apply for undergraduate graduation through the main university Registrar’s Office.
Major Field Test
All MBA students must take the Major Field Test in order to graduate. The ETS® Major Field Tests are comprehensive undergraduate and MBA outcomes assessments designed to measure the critical knowledge and understanding obtained by students in a major field of study. The Major Field Tests go beyond the measurement of actual knowledge by helping us evaluate students’ ability to analyze and solve problems, understand relationships and interpret material from their major field of study.
There is no specific way to “study” for the Major Field Test. Information regarding the examination can be found at https://www.ets.org/s/mft/pdf/mft_mba_flyer.pdf. Students will take the Major Field Test as part of the MBA 790 “Strategic Management ‘Live Case’ Seminar” course.
Students enrolled in the MBA Program may need to withdraw from the MBA program. Students can receive a full tuition refund for the courses they are enrolled in at the time of withdrawal provided the withdrawal form is submitted prior to the second class meeting. No refund will be made after the second class meeting. To withdraw from the MBA program complete the Program Withdrawal Form and submit it to the Graduate Programs Office.
