Pre-MBA Advising

GMAT - Graduate Management Admissions Test Information
GRE - Graduate Record Exam Information

The Office of Undergraduate Research and Student Support Services offers services to assist you in applying to a Master in Business Administration (MBA) program.  These services complement the academic advising you receive from your School’s or College’s Office of Undergraduate Advising.  The Pre-MBA Manual is available on-line for all students at the University of Miami.

Selecting an MBA program needs to be a well thought-out and researched decision.  In selecting an MBA program, students should examine their individual priorities and consider the following factors:  Where can I get in (GPA/GMAT/years of work experience)?  Should I work full-time first and then go back to school?  What is the reputation of the MBA program-is it AACSB accredited?  How much will it cost?  What is the location?  What is the size? What special programs are offered? What joint degree programs are offered?  What are the job opportunities when I graduate? These, along with a host of other considerations, are important factors that will ultimately determine which MBA program you will attend.

For answers to the above questions, I hope you will find the Pre-MBA Manual, along with information in 104 Merrick, helpful in your search.  Confidential counseling appointments are available by calling 284-4641.  The Office of Undergraduate Research and Student Support Services  will sponsor many informational programs throughout the year.  Look at the bulletin board outside 104 Merrick for upcoming workshops and events.
