Yes. We do accept the GRE in place of the GMAT. In general, we look for verbal and quantitative component scores of at least 155 each. However, these are generalizations; as always, we take a holistic approach to admissions and do not have any fixed minimum test score. Please contact our office with questions.
There is no minimum required GMAT score. However, the average GMAT score of admitted applicants ranges from 620 to 650. You may take the GMAT as often as you like. We will always consider your highest score when evaluating your application.

A test score is a required part of our application package. However, we do offer testing waivers for certain well-qualified applicants. Waiver criteria include (but are not limited to): applicants who hold certain advanced degrees, those who received their undergraduate degree from the Kelley School of Business (Indianapolis or Bloomington), those who completed certain graduate-level Kelley certificates, and those with extensive professional-level work experience. For more information about testing waivers, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're here to help you. Please refer to the transcripts videos on our How to Apply Page for complete instructions.

The Evening MBA Program has a limited number of scholarships available for applicants who score a 700 or higher on the GMAT or an equivalent score on the GRE. We use this calculator to convert GRE scores to predicted GMAT scores. Please contact the program office at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Other fellowships, awards, etc. may be available to you through the IUPUI Graduate Office.
For information about loans and other financial aid, please contact the IUPUI Office of Student Financial Services via Student Central.
No. Our program has no prerequisites. If accepted into the program, you will be required to take an accounting primer (a short online course in basic accounting principles) after acceptance but before taking your first accounting course. Accepted students who are licensed CPAs may be exempt from taking the primer. Please contact the program office at email@example.com for more information.
The Evening MBA Program requires that 48 of the 54 credit hours be taken in residence at the Kelley School of Business. If you have been enrolled in a previous graduate business program, you may petition to transfer up to 6 hours of credit, provided it meets certain criteria and has the approval of the Evening MBA Program faculty chair.
The Office of the Registrar determines Indiana residency. Typically, a student must be a resident of the state for 12 months, working full-time and not simply residing here for tuition purposes.
It depends on the type of visa you hold. We can accept many types of visas. However, we cannot accept F1 or J1 visas. Holders of these visas must be enrolled in school full time, while the Evening MBA is a part-time program of study. F1 or J1 visa holders may contact our colleagues on the Indiana University Bloomington campus regarding admission to the Kelley Full-time MBA Program: firstname.lastname@example.org.
After we’ve received all your application materials and if the Evening MBA Admissions Committee feels you are a viable candidate, we’ll notify you within 10 business days that you’ve been selected for an admissions interview. After the interview, we’ll notify you within seven business days if you’ve been admitted.
24 months. It is a part-time MBA program designed to be completed while you work full time (or while you pursue another graduate degree as part of an approved dual degree program).
You'll typically have class twice a week: one night per week on campus and one night per week online. Our students enjoy this "hybrid model" because it allows them to build face-to-face relationships with professors and peers while affording them the flexibility of online learning.
Most Evening MBA classes meet 6:00-9:00 p.m., approximately.
No. We do not accept non-degree-seeking students. Anyone wanting to take Evening MBA classes must apply and be admitted into the full degree program.
The Evening MBA uses a cohort structure. Twice a year in August and November, we admit a cohort of 50–70 new students, ambitious professionals who take the same core classes together at the same time. Our students tell us they frequently learn as much from other students as from their professors; this peer learning model is integral to the program.
For this reason, we strongly discourage you from applying to or enrolling in the program unless you’re prepared to complete the coursework schedule as planned for the full 24 months. Our curriculum and schedule require your commitment — but we promise it’ll be worth it.
Of course, we understand that life happens. If your circumstances change after beginning the program, and it’s no longer possible for you to complete the coursework as scheduled, we’ll work with you. However, prospective students should not enter the program with this expectation of flexibility.
