Face Masks: The W requires everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a face covering inside all buildings.


COLUMBUS, Miss.— Students can now apply to several Mississippi University for Women graduate school programs without an entrance exam score. Additional requirements may still need to be met for admission. 

 “The W is always exploring ways to increase access to our academic programs. I am proud that we are providing pathways to success for our many outstanding current students and future students," said Dr. Scott Tollison, provost and vice president of academic affairs.

The W’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, Master of Public Health (MPH) in Public Health and the Master of Arts in Women's Leadership are still accepting applications and do not require an entrance exam score.  

Previously The W’s online MBA program required students to submit a Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score. Applying students are still required to submit official undergraduate and graduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation and three admissions essays.  

The program offers a flat rate $10,000 fee that includes tuition, online fees, capital improvement fees, and eliminates all out-of-state fees. Students of the program have the option to complete the program in three consecutive terms through the full-time track or at their own pace via the part-time track.

The program can be completed in two years. Upon completion of the program, graduates are prepared to work in communities, schools, healthcare settings and government agencies. Students must complete the online application, submit official transcripts, reference forms, resume and an admissions essay.
