Darla Moore School of Business


Admission Requirements

We are constantly looking for hard-working, talented individuals for our MACC program. Applicants are evaluated across a number of factors, including:

  • Undergraduate performance
  • GMAT score
  • References/recommendations
  • Resume
  • Other compelling factors

Competitive applicants typically have an overall (or last 60 hrs) GPA of 3.25+ and a GMAT score of 570+ (50th percentile). These are not specific admissions requirements, however, as each applicant is evaluated individually and assessed on the admission committee's view of their potential to excel in our program. If you would like to have a pre-application workup performed to provide you a personalized view of your admissions potential, please email us a copy of your unofficial transcript(s), a current resume and a brief statement of career objectives (one paragraph is fine) at macc@moore.sc.edu.

Looking for more admissions information, including application deadlines? Don't forget to look over our admissions process.

To apply for our MACC program, simply complete the online application. We cannot review your application until we receive ALL of your required application documents.

Online Application Checklist

Official transcripts

If your college or university offers PDF delivery of transcripts, please provide them with director of admissions contact information to make sure the transcripts are considered official. Transcripts sent to individuals, other than the director of admissions, might not be considered official. E-transcripts should be sent to Graduate Admissions Director Scott King (scott.king@moore.sc.edu). 

GMAT

Applicants must provide a valid (five years or less) Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) score to be considered for admission to the MACC program. Our institutional/program code is JV2-TP-28.

Current resume and statement of purpose essay

Applicants must complete a brief (about 500-words) statement of purpose essay. This essay should outline your career objectives, and how our program supports those objectives. Applicants are also provided the ability to attach an optional personal essay. This essay is available to explain any circumstances you feel the admissions committee might need to know when evaluating your application.

Letters of recommendation (two required)

It is acceptable to have either professional or academic letters of recommendation. However, it is encouraged that candidates submit academic letters of reference whenever possible.

TOEFL/IELTS

International applicants must submit a valid (two years old or less) test score demonstrating their command of the English language. The institutional code for the Darla Moore School of Business is 5818. International students graduating from a U.S. institution with at least three years of studying within the United States might qualify for an exemption of this requirement.
