Two Year MMPA Admission Requirements

Open to all students, the Two-Year MMPA can help students with any 4-year undergraduate degree make the jump into management.

For students with a non-business undergraduate degree, this program pairs their previous studies with robust business and accounting capabilities. These students are required to complete a 3-month foundation term to ensure they have a solid introduction to the topics covered in the program.

To be eligible for the Two Year MMPA without needing to complete the 3-month foundation term, students must meet the Advanced Standing Requirements.
