Specialty Master's Programs - Attention High Performing Seniors

In today's competitive job market, a master's degree from a top ranked business school can help separate you from the pack. A specialty master's degree from the Smith School can give you the extra knowledge and skills you need to land your dream job, earn more, make a career transition, and make an impact on your organization. The Smith School of Business offers specialty master’s degrees in:
  • Master of Finance 
  • Master of Science in Accounting 
  • Master of Science in Business Analytics 
  • Master of Science in Business and Management 
  • Master of Science in Information Systems 
  • Master of Science in Marketing Analytics 
  • Master of Science in Supply Chain Management 
High Performing Seniors who wish to apply for one of the seven specialty master's programs listed above may be eligible for an application fee waiver, a video submission waiver, as well as an exemption of the GMAT or GRE exam.
The seniors must meet the following criteria:
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher 
  • B or better in statistical analysis or related course 
  • B or better in Financial and Managerial Accounting (MS in Accounting only) 
Please note that if you are interested, you must apply directly to the Specialty Master's Program so you can enroll after you have completed your undergraduate degree ​for a Fall 2017 start​.

This is not the same as the 4+1 (Dual Bachelors/Masters) Program, which has a separate application and admission criteria.
