To apply to this program, you must have a bachelor’s degree in any subject from a regionally accredited U.S. institution (or the international equivalent). We need original transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate institutions you have attended, sent directly from the school. The only exception is for advanced placement courses and study abroad transfer credits—we don’t need transcripts for those.

Send via email: If your institution offers electronic transcripts, ask them to email your transcript(s) to gradadmissions@stthomas.edu.

Send via mail: Paper transcripts must be submitted in sealed envelopes and signed by the appropriate university official. Send to:

As part of your online application, you will provide the name and email address of two individuals who can provide a recommendation. Recommenders can be employers, co-workers or anyone who can speak to your professional abilities and fit for an MBA program.

Your recommenders can either fill out our Recommendation Form, or write you a letter that covers this information:

  • Their relationship to you and how long they’ve known you
  • Their impression of your ability to succeed in a graduate business program
  • Your outstanding characteristics, and areas where you need to grow or develop
  • Your present impact on the recommender’s organization or business
  • How graduate study would influence your professional growth

Once you submit your completed online application, the admissions committee will review it. If you meet the program requirements and demonstrate strong credentials, the admissions team will contact you to schedule an interview.
