To learn about the Admissions Requirements for International Students, click here.

NYIT’s M.B.A. program is open to all qualified students who have obtained a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college deemed equivalent to a four-year baccalaureate granted by U.S. colleges. Applicants with a two-year degree or its equivalent will not be considered for admission into the M.B.A Program. The exception to the four-year baccalaureate requirement is that consideration for admission into the Bridge Program is given to applicants who possess a three-year college degree with satisfactory grades and GMAT scores.  The only way to determine if your baccalaureate degree is or is not comparable to a four-year, U.S. degree, is by evaluating your undergraduate transcript. Therefore, you must first send in your application and all additional documents so that they may be reviewed.  If it is determined that you may be admitted to the Bridge Program, you will be required to complete an extra 30 credits of course work beyond the regular M.B.A. requirements. A minimum GPA of 2.7 and a minimum score of 400 on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) are required for admission. Scores less than 400 are unacceptable for matriculation. 

All international students whose first language is not English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam and submit official scores to the Office of Admissions. If you received your baccalaureate degree in the United States, and can provide proof of your U.S. degree, or if you have already successfully completed English Composition at another institution, then the TOEFL or the IELTS are not required. If, however, you received your undergraduate degree from a foreign university, or if you have not completed English Composition, you are required to take the TOEFL exam. A written-based score of 550, a computer-based score of 213, or an Internet-based score of 79/80 is required for full admission. If you score 500-549 on the written, 173-212 on the computerized, or 61-79/80 on the Internet-based, you may be required to study English as a Second Language before you can be fully matriculated into your academic program of choice. If you score below 500, 173 or 61, you may apply only to our English Language Institute (ELI) for additional instruction in English. 

IELTS: A test score on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) of 6 is required for full admission. If you score below a 6 but above a 5, you may be required to study English as a second language before you can be fully matriculated into your academic program of choice. If you score below a 5, you may apply to NYIT's English Language Institute for additional instruction in English. You may also retake the IELTS.

The GMAT code for NYIT reporting is OQN-RL-35 for full-time studies; and OQN-RL-74 for part-time studies. The TOEFL code for NYIT reporting is 2561.
