Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of the most common questions asked in regards to the Master of Science in Business Administration (MSBA) program.

Does a certification from The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) count toward my eligibility if I have a 3-year undergraduate degree?

Yes, if you have passed all 3 levels of the ICAI certification, the Graduate College will consider you eligible for limited status admission with a 3-year bachelor’s degree.

I have been admitted on 'limited status' for English proficiency. What does that mean?

Full status admission for English proficiency is 103 on TOEFL or 7.5 on IELTS or higher, however, lower scores will be considered for limited status admission. Students admitted on limited status must complete the English Placement Test upon arrival to campus and, if required, complete English as a second language course(s) (based upon EPT results). Once a student successfully completes both, the student will have fulfilled the requirements of the limited status.

Where can I find some additional resources for financial aid?

Hourly university positions may be found at the Office of Student Financial Aid.

Please note: if you have an F1 visa, you may ONLY work on campus at university positions. Limited scholarships and financial aid resources for international students can be found at the Office of Student Financial Aid or the International Student & Scholar Services.
