Admissions Checklist

MSU responds to novel coronavirus pandemic

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR FALL 2021

We recognize that the global COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for some applicants to take the GRE or GMAT. Thus, we are making the GRE/GMAT requirement optional for Fall 2021 master's admissions.

If you are not submitting a GRE or GMAT score as part of your application materials, please submit an academic statement that includes a discussion of both your past experiences (work or academic) involving data analysis and the strength of your quantitative analytical skills.

For questions, please contact Melanie Zaremba at mzaremba@msu.edu.

You must have taken and received a 3.0 in the equivalent of following courses:

  • Behavioral Science
  • Statistics
  • Micro-Economics

Admission into the MHRLR program is determined by a careful case-by-case review of each applicant's credentials. There are two admission procedures: a general admissions procedure available to any applicant and one for those with five or more years of meaningful work experience.
