Admission Requirements

To enter KU's Master of Science in Engineering Management degree program, applicants must:

  1. Hold a Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree in engineering or related science from an accredited institution.
    Technology degrees are considered only with a very high (e.g. 3.8) GPA and substantial experience (8-10 years).
  2. Have earned a 3.0 or higher grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) in undergraduate studies. Admission may be granted on a provisional basis if your GPA is between 2.50 and 2.99.
  3. Have at least two years of full-time, post-undergraduate work experience in a technological environment.
  4. International students must also meet English, visa, and financial support requirements (detailed in the "How to Apply" section).

Neither the GRE or GMAT are required.

Non-degree-seeking Status

Students can enroll in EMGT classes as non-degree-seeking, without being (or before being) admitted to the program as degree seeking. Non-degree-seeking students only need to fill out the non-degree-seeking application, submit the application fee and submit their official transcript(s). If admitted, a student can apply up to 6 credits earned while in non-degree-seeking status toward a degree.
