Sabriya Chaudhry

Accelerated MBA in Healthcare Management GR 2022
WooSox Foundation Coordinator, Worcester Red Sox

I love being able to enhance my business knowledge and apply what I’m learning each day.

I handle the day-to-day operations of the WooSox Foundation. The MBA program is perfect for anyone looking to continue their education. I was nervous about starting a new program; however, the faculty and staff have helped make my transition back to school seamless.
Greg Sclama

Part-time MBA 2010
Researcher, UNICEF

Students can tailor their degrees to their career passions.

I had an interest in learning about small business in developing economies as a means for poverty alleviation. Six months later, I was completing distance learning while working with a non-government organization that assists the rural poor in Rajasthan, India.
Kathryn White

Part-time MBA 2010
Vice President, Risk Management, GFA Federal Credit Union

I was transformed into a stronger manager who emphasizes strategic goals and critical thinking.

The blended courses are a huge help for a busy professional. The curriculum was delivered half in the classroom and half online, without reducing the quality of the education. The interaction between professors and students was exceptional.

Monique Tremblay

I’m making a far greater impact at work.

I feel more comfortable interacting with senior leadership. Whether it’s due to my higher confidence level or simply the fact that I now have an MBA, colleagues genuinely value my opinions and trust that I know what I’m talking about.
Patrick Mescall

Part-time MBA 2014
New Product Development Senior Sourcing Specialist, Tokyo Electron

I live and work 45 minutes away - it’s an MBA worth fighting evening traffic for.

There’s a real sense of community and collaboration. The classes are small and enthusiastic and the instructors are accessible and willing to help. It's also important that the curriculum and case studies are highly relevant to the real world of being a business manager.
Ledia Dilo

Supply Chain Senior Manager, Rubius Therapeutics

I came to Assumption College ready to be a manager, and I am walking away ready to be a leader.

Marco Raposo

It was not fortune that brought me to Assumption but the belief that it was the best place for me.

Admissions Requirements

Part-Time MBA Specific Requirements

TOEFL Scores: The minimum accepted score for TOEFL is 540 paper, 200 computer and 79-80 internet and for IELTS is 6.0.

GMAT Scores: The GMAT is not required.

Personal Statement

The Admissions Committee will consider the match between your professional interests and Assumption’s program offerings. We recommend that you give considerable thought to the content of your essay as it is an important part of the evaluation process. Success in the MBA program and in the field requires high levels of responsibility, integrity, and interpersonal skill, as well as mastery of theory and research methodology. We are seeking candidates who have thought deeply about their reasons to pursue an advanced degree in business. We encourage you to reflect this thought and to describe your preparation thoroughly in the essay you submit.  Your personal statement should answer each of the following questions:

  1. Describe the academic preparation and skills that you have that you believe qualify you for the rigorous training involved in our master's program in Business.
  2. Describe what you hope to accomplish academically during your graduate program and the career goals you have for yourself. Focusing on the actual job you would like to have five years after completing your graduate study will bring specificity to your essay.
  3. Describe your strengths and other qualities that you see as essential to be successful in business.

Recommendation Letters (3): Submit three recommendations from individuals in a position to assess your potential performance in an MBA program. At least one, and preferably more of these references, should be from former professors or other academics. Only letters that are academic or professional in nature will be considered. Recommendations may be submitted using the recommendation form.

References from friends, relatives, or peers/colleagues at work are generally not helpful to the Admissions Committee. Multiple references from the same employer are also discouraged.

If you are relying on work references because of the unavailability of academic references, anyone you ask to complete a reference should focus directly on your ability to meet the demands of a graduate program in business, and not merely report on your employment.
