- Global Technology
- Human Resource Management
- Operations, Service and Supply Chain
- Law and Ethics
Students who are ready to begin taking courses, but are unable to meet the deadline with application materials should ask about the option to apply as a Graduate, Non-Degree Seeking student. Only a $15 fee, transcripts and resumé are required.
You can take up to 12 credit hours as a Non-Degree Seeking student, and that would give you more time to gather all materials for the Online MBA application to enroll the following semester.
The courses taken as a Non-Degree Seeking student would count toward the MBA once a student is admitted.
Official transcripts of academic records must be obtained from colleges, universities and professional schools attended outside of Kent State University. Unofficial transcripts can be uploaded and used for an admission decision, but official copies will need to be submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies before you can enroll.
Applicants are required to submit a resumé.
GMAT or GRE Scores
Only test scores within the past five years are considered. In the case of multiple tests, the highest score will be used.
Prospective students should plan to take the exam at least one month before the application deadline. Although scores will be provided the day of the exam, it can take up to 10 days for scores to be received by Kent State University.
