Admissions Criteria

The central concern of the admission committee is selecting candidates who will be successful in the program. The admission committee does not use a rigid set of criteria to make this decision. The admission criteria that are considered include the following:

  • Graduation from an accredited undergraduate college or university
  • A minimum of two years of relevant work experience in a professional or entry level managerial position
  • A minimum cumulative grade point average in undergraduate work of 3.0 out of a possible 4.0


While you need not have majored in business to be admitted to BW's Graduate Business Certificate program, you must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution. When reviewing your application, we take many factors into consideration:

  • Demonstrated professional attainment
  • Evidence of personal growth and accomplishment
  • Clear evidence of academic achievement
