Syracuse University’s MBA and Master’s Programs Adjust Admissions Timelines Due to COVID-19

Syracuse University’s full-time MBA and on-campus master’s programs have made some changes to its admissions cycle in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. An additional round of applications will be accepted by May 15. In addition, the Duolingo English Test has been added as an alternate option for the IELTS/TOEFL exam. The minimum score requirement is an overall score of 120.

There also are dedicated virtual rooms available to meet with candidates who have questions. To make an appointment for a virtual meeting, email busgrad@syr.edu

“We want candidates to still be able to apply and pursue graduate education this fall once we get through this together,” says Christopher Wszalek, executive director of graduate admissions and student recruitment. “We also have financial aid available to qualified candidates; nearly all our students are eligible for scholarships.”

The full-time Syracuse MBA program is designed to provide students with a collaborative and customized experience that prepares them for success in today’s ever-changing global marketplace. Through real-world, practical learning experiences and in-depth specializations, students gain the skills needed to become an effective leader. Syracuse’s relevant and rigorous MBA curriculum is enhanced through experiential learning, which provides hands-on practice to develop critical thinking skills and apply classroom lessons in solving complex business scenarios. Students choose to specialize in one of seven concentrations, including accounting, business analytics, entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises, finance, marketing management, real estate and supply chain management.

In addition, the Whitman School offers six full-time master’s programs—accounting, business analytics, entrepreneurship, finance, marketing and supply chain management. 

The Whitman School is a proud partner of the National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA) through the NBMBAA Collegiate Partnership Program, which aims to increase awareness and facilitate access to graduate and business education programs.
