Admission to the Upper Management Division

With few exceptions, Krannert School of Management courses numbered 30000 or higher are open only to students who have been admitted to the Upper Management Division. Consequently, such admission is necessary to the completion of the school's baccalaureate programs.

Students pursuing the management or accounting programs are guaranteed admission if they complete all course requirements specified in the first three semesters of the chosen plan of study with a Management Admissions Index (MAI) of at least 3.00. Students pursuing the Industrial Management program are guaranteed admission if they complete all course requirements specified in the first three semesters of the chosen plan of study with an MAI of at least 2.85. The MAI is the average of grades earned in certain specified courses as noted in the plans of study. In addition, for automatic admission, all students must have a "C" or higher in all MAI and School of Management courses, must have a 2.50 overall GPA (2.40 for Industrial Management) and cannot be on probation.

To ensure continuity in the student's academic progress, at least 12 hours of the courses comprising the MAI must be taken at Purdue; the management and economics courses contained in the index must be taken at Purdue. MAI courses, or their equivalents, may only be enrolled in two times for a grade or W. A maximum of three courses may be retaken for a grade.

Students in the Economics program are guaranteed admission if they complete all Economics Admissions Index (EAI) courses with a minimum graduation index of 2.75.

All students are encouraged to consult closely with their academic advisors regarding their academic performance and progress.
