Applying to the MBA Program
Representatives from Rider University’s College of Business Administration and Office of Graduate Admissions will provide assistance throughout the admissions, acceptance and registration processes. This support will be provided onsite on the Hopewell Campus.
How to Apply to Rider's MBA Program
To be considered for admission into the MBA program, you will need to provide the following to Rider:
A completed Rider BofA Graduate Program Application and official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate educational institutions attended (with any foreign degree credential evaluations) prior to the start of classes.
Scores from the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Exam (GRE). The GMAT/GRE requirement will be waived under the following conditions:
You hold a graduate degree from an accredited U.S. college or university (MA, MS, PhD or JD) or a CPA license.
If you earned a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA at your undergraduate institution and have at least two years’ business experience you may take up to 12 credit hours of classes in the MBA program, and if you maintain a GPA of 3.3 GPA or higher for those 12 credit hours, the GMAT/GRE requirement will be waived.
A current resume.
Your candidacy will be evaluated according to your academic and professional achievements and experience, consistent with Rider University’s admissions standards.
Your undergraduate and graduate transcripts will be reviewed to determine which pre-program courses can be waived. If you have started a master’s degree at another institution, that course work will be evaluated for possible transfer to the Rider MBA program. You will then be provided with your own personal course of study (summary of required classes) needed to complete the MBA.
Admission to the MBA program is offered on a rolling basis, at any point during the year. Classes will be scheduled at the BofA’s Hopewell Campus in such a manner that students can start in the summer and take the majority of courses at the Hopewell location.
