Admission Requirements

Our target class will represent a range of undergraduate majors, educational backgrounds, and perspectives to ensure a high-quality classroom experience. We expect the incoming students to be representative of the full-time, degree-seeking, non-business undergraduate student demographics at Texas A&M University.


Candidates must have a non-business bachelor’s degree from an accredited university with a strong academic performance in the last 60 hours. Candidates must complete their undergraduate degree on or before May 31 of the year they desire admission into the MS Business program.

The program is designed for candidates with a single, undergraduate degree and little (or no) professional work experience. Interested applicants with up to 12 months of full-time work experience may consider the degree. Interested applicants with more than 12 months of full-time work experience, more than one undergraduate degree, and/or a master’s degree should consider either the Mays Full-Time MBA or the Mays Professional MBA.

We encourage students from Texas A&M University who earned the Business Minor to consider the program. In addition, engineering students from Texas A&M who participate in the Zachry Leadership Program are encouraged to apply.
