Admission is based on the candidate’s undergraduate grade point average, GMAT, a personal statement, and two references.
Applicants must produce evidence of successful completion of the following basic
accounting core courses or equivalent:
The above accounting core courses must have been taken at a four-year, accredited college or university, at the junior/senior level. Applicants who have not met the above
accounting core requirements will be expected to complete successfully, with a minimum 3.0 GPA, the requirements at the start of their program. Applicants who have passed the CPA examination will receive an automatic waiver of the above requirements.
To receive the degree, students must complete all program requirements with a minimum
grade point average of 3.0 and no more than one grade below B in the courses beyond the basic accounting core courses.
Admission to the Barney School is competitive and selective. Students are admitted at the beginning of the fall, spring, and summer terms.
