Admission Requirements

Here's what you'll need to apply for the Baylor Business MBA Online.

Online Application

To begin the online application please follow the steps outlined here.

Undergraduate Transcripts

A bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in the U.S. or proof of equivalent training at a foreign university is required. Transcripts are required only from degree-granting institutions for bachelor's degrees and higher. The transcript from your graduating institution must show proof of degree. Transcripts for transfer credits are not required.

International Students:

English Language Tests: All foreign national and permanent resident applicants are required to provide a score from the TOEFL, IELTS or PTE Academic. Minimum scores are required.

Foreign Transcripts: If you are an international applicant, or attended a foreign university, please follow the guidelines for foreign transcripts available here.


A detailed current resume, indicating professional work experience – including start and end dates (month and year) for each position held is required. Provide accomplishments and skills acquired, including managerial experience.

A cover letter is optional. Just as you would apply for a professional position, the one-page cover letter would include reasons why you are qualified for a place in the Online MBA program, how your participation will add value to the program, or explain any other information useful to the admissions committee.

Work Experience

While admission to the Baylor Online MBA is based on a holistic review of your file, the average student shows ten or more years of full time post-graduate work experience. Your career progression will be considered, as well as whether you have had direct reports, managed projects, budgets or held significant leadership roles.

Include three professional letters of recommendation from employers and superiors who can attest to your talents, professional skills, work accomplishments, and qualifications for consideration as a Baylor MBA online student. Submit contact information for your three references when completing your application.


The GMAT/GRE is required for applicants with less than of four years of post-graduate, leadership, or project management experience. Call 855-804-7191 and speak to an Enrollment Advisor if you wish to clarify whether your work experience qualifies.
