A complete application for graduate study at SU consists of:

  • MBA for Veterans Online Application.
  • Official copies of your transcript in sealed envelopes. Instruct the school official to sign across the seal and return the sealed envelope to you. Transcripts should indicate the years of attendance, subjects studied each year, and the grade of proficiency earned in each. A key to the marking system should also be included. A student copy of the transcript can also be submitted online alone with the application.
  • Copy of the student’s most recent resume to be submitted online.
  • At least two (2) - three (3) letters of recommendation are required for all master's candidates. Recommendations should be obtained from those individuals who can speak on your qualifications for graduate study in management. Please use the recommendation forms provided in the application. While placement forms or personal letters are acceptable, they frequently provide less information than the committee desires. Please provide the person making the recommendation with a self-addressed envelope and request signature across seal or ask them to email the recommendation to Wendy Frye at
  • The result of your Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examinations (GRE).


During the evaluation process, photocopies of the GMAT and college transcripts will be accepted; however, you cannot be formally admitted into the program or school having an electronic copy sent from GMAT or GRE to Syracuse University, MBA Program. A test taker copy cannot be accepted.

The GRE is now accepted as an alternative to the GMAT for admission to the MBA program. If you take the GRE as an alternative to the GMAT, be sure to send your GRE score to: Code 2823. The department code can be left blank. GRE scores will be reviewed and accepted based on an overall score with an emphasis on quantitative reasoning.
