Admission Requirements

The MIAGE admissions committee seeks a diverse pool of applicants who aspire to learn, practice, and interact in a supportive yet rigorous graduate program designed to help you achieve. We admit MIAGE students representing a variety of undergraduate majors, including business and the social sciences. We also welcome students with diverse professional backgrounds, including those who work in business, government, NGOs, and those coming directly from their undergraduate studies.

The MIAGE admissions committee carefully reviews an applicant's combined academic and professional background. The committee will evaluate each application individually and will consider:

Academic background, including undergraduate transcripts and academic recommendations. You may also choose to submit optional standardized test scores. Professional experience including work experience, internships, professional recommendations, and volunteer and community service activities.  Evaluation of the content of your letter of intent (or personal statement). The admissions committee will also use this document to assess your writing skills.
