Application Process for Graduate School of Business

We look forward to receiving your application!

When should you apply?

Iona's graduate programs operate on a rolling admission basis. But we do encourage you to submit your application a month prior to a session start if possible, to help better assure a smooth transition. Classes follow a trimester schedule, which includes five registration terms: Fall (end of August), Winter, (late November); Spring (late February) and two Summer sessions. New students can enter our programs at any of these points.

What is required to submit a completed application?

  • Completed School of Business online application form
  • An official transcript from each undergraduate and graduate institution attended
  • One letter of recommendation
  • The GMAT is not required for admission to our graduate business programs. However, you do have the option of taking the GMAT and submitting your scores if you feel it will strengthen your application.
