Who attends the UConn Executive MBA Program?
UConn’s Executive MBA is designed for experienced managers, high potential professionals, and entrepreneurs looking to build upon existing business skills and to develop new ones. Participants have substantial work experience and come from diverse backgrounds both in terms of function and industry.
All applicants must meet the general requirements for admission to the Graduate School and may be asked to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). Applicants already holding an advanced degree will not be asked to submit GMAT scores.
Applicants should have an undergraduate degree in any field and as well as substantial work experience. While GMAT scores, GPA, and other objective criteria are important, the Admissions Committee also considers a prospective student’s background, work experience, and other factors.
