Application requirements

Select the year in which you plan on entering the program. International students based abroad are only eligible to apply for the full-time enrollment.  

Ensure your resume clearly lists the dates of any professional (ex: full-time role, internships, co-ops), volunteer, non-profit or any other leadership experiences. There is no formatting requirement, however, please review your resume for any grammar mistakes. It should be no longer than two pages. Ideally, candidates for the MS in Marketing program should have a minimum of two years of professional work experience

You must have a U.S. bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution, or the international equivalent, by the time of application. You can submit an unofficial copy of all of your undergraduate and graduate transcripts (and degree documents, if applicable) with your application, but official transcripts will be required if you’re accepted.  

If you are an international applicant, you may be required to submit a NACES-approved, course–by-course evaluation on your transcript. Please contact the Graduate Programs Office to see if this is a requirement for your program. 

Please complete the following prompt in 500 words or less:

  • What is your career focus in marketing? What job or role do you aspire to after completing your degree? What is your long-term ambition?

Please select two recommenders who will be able to discuss your professional performance, academic performance and work style. This can include previous supervisors, faculty members or mentors. Letters of recommendations must come directly from the listed recommender on your application.

IMPORTANT: Your application will not move forward in the review process until we receive both letters of recommendation.

The GMAT and GRE are optional.

Applicants are required to pay a fee to complete their application:
  • U.S. Residents: $65
  • International: $70

If your native language is not English, you must demonstrate your proficiency in English. This includes submitting an IELTS, TOEFL or Duolingo test score.

Please reference the 'Graduate Entrance Exams' section on the Graduate Admissions Requirements page for information on the minimum score needed to be eligible for the program.

Next steps

The program makes every effort to review and respond to applicants in a timely manner, typically within two to three weeks of the application being completed. During peak periods, or very early in the admission cycle, additional processing time may be needed.
