We are pleased with your interest in our graduate program. Before you continue with the electronic application for admission, we wish to ensure that you are familiar with the minimum requirements for admission to graduate degree study in Technology Leadership and Innovation. It is important to recognize that although satisfaction of these basic requirements does not guarantee graduate admission, failure to satisfy these requirements may lead to automatic denial of admission.

MS in Technology Leadership and Supervision (On-Campus)

The admissions process selects highly qualified applicants into the MS program by considering each of the following criteria in judging the overall strength of the applicant. Typically, no single criterion is used as a sole determinant for admission.

  • Official original transcripts from each college or university at which you have completed course work are required before an application can be processed. We require an official transcript.
  • An undergraduate grade point average of 3.00 or better (on a 4.00 scale) from accredited institutions is required for unconditional admission.
  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores at or above the 50th percentile (for each test subsection) are required for unconditional admission. There is no minimum score expectation. The GRE is not waived for admission to this program.
  • Demonstration of a high level of competence in written communication as evidenced by a writing sample such as the statement of purpose, a prior thesis, a research paper, or other significant and personally written product.
  • Personal and professional characteristics commensurate with success in academics in industry.
