Student Learning Outcomes

Students graduating with the MBA will be able to:

  1. Attain a career, career advancement, or entrance into an additional or advanced graduate program in business or a related field.
  2. Demonstrate critical thinking skills in the area of business.
  3. Effectively practice their profession upon graduation by integrating the core business functions.

  • stakeholder surveys,
  • internship data,
  • course evaluations, and
  • a culminating experience during the last semester of the student’s program.

Application for Admission

Individuals applying for admission into the MBA program at CSC shall meet the following entrance requirements:

  1. Application for admission to graduate study must be completed online on the CSC website.
  2. Applicants must possess an earned baccalaureate degree. Those having graduated from an unaccredited institution may be accepted conditionally, provided all other college and departmental requirements have been met.
  3. Students must submit to Admissions an official transcript from the college or university which issued bachelor’s degree and from any institutions attended afterwards, if applicable. (To be considered an official transcript, it must be sent directly to CSC from the college or university.) Transcripts from CSC need not be submitted.
  4. Applicants must have a 2.75 undergraduate GPA or above on a 4.0 scale. Domestic students who do not meet the minimum entry GPA, but meet all other requirements, may be conditionally accepted until they have completed the first 12 credits in their degree program and must obtain a GPA of at least 3.25 by the end of this period in order to qualify for formal acceptance consideration. Failure to meet this threshold will result in dismissal from the graduate program.
  5. Admission may be determined by one of two methods:
    • Acceptance: The student must have passed the MBA entrance exam at a minimum level established by the Business Department. (All MBA students will also be expected to complete a required exit exam prior to graduation.) OR
    • Conditional Acceptance: Students who do not attain the minimum entrance exam score will be conditionally accepted for a semester until they successfully complete the business leveling course at the minimum set by the department to satisfy the Common Professional Components. Please contact the Graduate Studies Office for additional information regarding the leveling course.
