Meet the Dean

“Organizational leadership is a strong focus of our curriculum and is a relevant and desired competency in today’s fast-changing, global marketplace.”

» Michael Williams, Ph.D.

The graduate entrance exam is not required; however, on a case-by-case basis the dean may require an applicant to submit GMAT scores. All candidates for the MSIBF are required to complete undergraduate courses in the following topics: financial accounting, microeconomics, finance and statistics. Candidates that have not completed these requirements can do so through the Graduate Business Degree Preparatory Program.
