Domestic Admission Requirements
Admission to the University of Connecticut MSFRM Program is highly selective. Most successful applicants have the following:
- At least two years of professional work experience after college and references that indicate a high likelihood of success.
- Strong performance on the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) or GRE.
- An earned baccalaureate degree from a 4-year program at a regionally accredited university or college.
- Undergraduate grade-point averages from 3.0 to 4.0 for either all 4 years or for the last 2 years.
- Candidates must have completed a college-level calculus course prior to entering the program.
Applicants with significant work experience and applicants who add to the cultural and geographic diversity of the student body are encouraged to apply even if they do not possess typical GMAT scores or undergraduate grade-point averages. No particular undergraduate preparation or course work is preferred. Students enrolled in the MSFRM program have majored in undergraduate programs as diverse as fine arts, the humanities, engineering, the natural sciences and business.
The MSFRM Program is committed to attracting qualified applicants from traditionally under-represented groups. The University of Connecticut is an Affirmative Action Institution.
