Admissions Checklist

MSU responds to novel coronavirus pandemic


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

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.
