All RSU MBA courses are delivered in an online, 8-week format. Students may begin courses at five entry dates each year: January, March, June, August, or October. 

Bachelor’s Degree or Higher 

  • The RSU MBA program requires students to have completed a bachelor’s degree in any field from an accredited college or university. A degree in a business-related field is recommended, but not required.  
  • If a student’s bachelor’s degree is in a non-business field, he or she will need to complete the business preparatory course and earn a grade of B or better. RSU conveniently offers this course in an online 8-week format. Credit for this course does not count toward the 36-hour program requirement. 
  • International credentials will be evaluated using an authorized English translation. Non-English documentation must be translated and evaluated by approved vendors. 


  • Business graduates must have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above. 
  • Non-business majors must have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above, and they must complete the business preparatory course. 
  • The Graduate Admissions Committee will review all applicants with a cumulative GPA less than 3.0 on Bachelor’s degree. 

No GMAT Required 

  • Rogers State University does not require the GMAT or GRE for admission to the MBA program. 

English Language Proficiency 

  • All MBA courses will be taught in American English.
  • Assignments, tests, papers, and correspondence with instructors are expected to be completed in English.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to secure translation services or transcription services.
