From the outset we work with companies to streamline a process for their internal selection of, and communication with, potential candidates. Companies generally submit a list of their recommended candidates six to nine months before the targeted start date of the program.

The W. P. Carey School of Business then directly assists candidates in the application and admissions process. Final admissions decisions are made by the ASU Graduate College, so recommended candidates cannot be guaranteed admission. We can work with client companies to develop a waiting list so we can admit the targeted number of employees.


Minimum requirements for admission are:

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent from an accredited university
  • 3.0 grade point average or equivalent
  • For non-native English speakers, evidence of English proficiency (TOEFL or IELTS). Please refer to ASU’s English proficiency requirements for more information.

GMAT scores are typically waived for applicants to custom corporate MBA programs.
