Management PhD Admission Information
In addition to the university admission requirements, a review of each applicant is conducted by the departmental doctoral policy committee and the college graduate instruction committee. This two-step process insures that only the best qualified applicants will be admitted into the program.
Admission is open to all qualified persons who hold bachelor’s and/or graduate degrees, regardless of the course of study pursued in those degrees. The review process includes an assessment of the following factors:
- Undergraduate or Four-year baccalaureate degree or higher from a college or university of recognized standing (i.e., degrees from institutions outside the United States are evaluated for equivalency to U.S. degrees)
- Scores on both the verbal and quantitative sections as well as the total score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE)
- Other factors relevant to predicting procession in the proposed graduate program; for example, transcripts, grade point ratio in the last 60 hours of coursework, letters of recommendation, professional and/or academic experience, promise of ability to pursue advanced study and research satisfactorily, and a statement of purpose
Limited resources and facilities may dictate that only higher ranked applicants be granted admission. For instance, faculty qualified to supervise research in the applicant’s area of interest should be present on campus.
Admission to Texas A&M University and any of its sponsored programs is open to qualified individuals subject to the above conditions regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or educationally unrelated handicaps.
A formal application is required of all persons seeking admission to Graduate Studies.
