Parker MBA Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need to take the GMAT or GRE exam?

A: For a majority of applicants the GMAT or GRE is not required. If you have an undergraduate cumulative grade point average of 2.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale, the GMAT or GRE is not necessary. In other cases, the GMAT may be required at the discretion of the Dean of the School of Business, depending on factors such as the
trend in your grades, your undergraduate major and your work experience.

Q: Is the Parker MBA program available online?

A: Yes. Starting in Fall 2017 we will be offering our full Parker MBA program online.  This online option leads to the exact same degree and includes the same coursework as our other MBA options except it can be completed 100% online. 

Q: My undergraduate degree is not in business. Will I have to take additional classes?

A: Students who do not have an educational background in business, and whose business experience is limited, may be required to begin the program with a foundation course.

Q: Will I receive credit if I completed graduate courses from another college/university?

A: Yes. You may request approval to transfer up to six semester hours or the equivalent of two courses from graduate study completed at another accredited college or university. To be eligible for transfer credit, you will need to have earned a "B” or better in those courses and to have completed those courses within the
last seven years.

A: Students who complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may be eligible for graduate student loan programs. The Lake Erie College FAFSA Code is 003066. Your personal Admissions & Financial Aid Counselor will be happy to assist you with the financial aid process.
