Admission Requirements  for the MBA program

In addition to the admission requirements for graduate studies at LeTourneau University, admission to the MBA program has additional requirements.

GPA Requirements: An applicant who does not meet the minimum GPA requirements for unconditional or probationary acceptance into the graduate program may provide a two-page professional resume, with employment history, job responsibilities, and volunteer service to the community and church. This material will be reviewed by the Graduate Admissions Committee which may grant probationary admission in some special circumstances. In no event will a student be admitted to the MBA program with a GPA of less than 2.25. The GPA calculation can be overall or for the last 60 hours.


Admission to the MBA program requires all entering students to possess and be able to demonstrate knowledge, theory and practice through course work in financial accounting, managerial accounting, macroeconomics, microeconomics, finance, marketing and statistics. Transcripts will be evaluated to determine whether the student has completed the necessary course work. If a student does not have all the required coursework, the student may take the required courses before applying or may take Academic Leveling Courses through Peregrine Academic Services. The Academic Leveling Courses available are the following:

Required Courses                                            Academic Leveling Courses

Principles of Financial Accounting                       Foundations of Accounting
and Managerial Accounting

Principles of Finance                                         Foundations of Business Finance

Macroeconomics                                              Foundations of Macroeconomics

Microeconomics                                               Foundations of Microeconomics

Principles of Marketing                                      Foundations of Marketing

Statistics                                                        Foundations of Quantitative Research Techniques and Statistics


Detailed information about registration for the Academic Leveling Courses, the cost, and access to the courses will be provided as part of the application process for students who wish to take the courses.

The decision of the Graduate Admissions Committee will be final.

Applicants to graduate programs who do not meet the GPA requirements for entrance must submit a resume that includes relevant full-time work experience. Upon review of the resume and other admissions materials, the Graduate Admissions Committee may admit the applicant on academic probation or may give students the option of taking the Graduate Management Aptitude Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Exam (GRE) to receive further consideration. The GMAT is the preferred exam for MBA applicants.
