Requirements and Selection Criteria

Each January, the Michael G. Foster School of Business enrolls up to 90 Technology Management MBA students. Our objective is to select students who demonstrate a strong aptitude for business and leadership, and who have a strong commitment to completing program requirements. Applicants are selected not only for their potential to benefit from the program, but also for the experience and knowledge they can contribute to the class. An invitation for an interview is extended to all qualified applicants. All applicants are evaluated using the following criteria:

  • Professional Experience:  Applicants are required to have post-baccalaureate professional work experience (minimum is 3 years and average is 12 years) with a history of increasing responsibility and a strong record of accomplishments.
  • Demonstrated Leadership Potential: Applicants must demonstrate leadership experience and senior management potential.  We assess this by looking at his or her work experience, accomplishments in community and extracurricular activities, and evaluating the applicant’s recommendations.
  • Education: Applicants to the Technology Management MBA Program are required to have a 4-year baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university.
  • Communication and Interpersonal Skills:  Due to the cohort, team-oriented nature of the program, it is imperative that an applicant demonstrate strong interpersonal skills and an ability to communicate clearly and effectively. These skills are evaluated in the required essays, recommendation letters and applicant interview.
  • General Intellectual Ability:  We evaluate each applicant’s performance on the Graduate Management Admission (GMAT) or GRE (Graduate Record Examination), which provide a reasonably valid and reliable measure of their verbal and quantitative abilities. These attributes are related to success in graduate management curricula. We also review undergraduate history, taking note of the difficulty of the curriculum and scholastic quality of the school.

In selecting the entering class, we strive to create an environment representative of the organizations in which the students work.  We believe that a diverse student body is reflected in the experience, cultural background, ethnic origin, professions, career goals, living experiences and previous academic study of the students and helps to create such an environment.
