To be considered for admission into the MBA program the following materials are required:

Please have all application materials sent directly to:
- Xavier University
- ATTN: Admission Processing Center
- 3800 Victory Parkway

You will be considered for admission into the program once all application materials have been received. While there is no formal application deadline, space in the West Chester program is limited and early application is recommended:
- Summer - June 15
- Spring - December 1
Beginning each year in January or July, program schedules are set from the start, allowing students to complete 44 credit hours of coursework by attending class two nights per week for 20 months with the same cohort of classmates. Classes typically begin at 5:30pm.
Students will have the opportunity to take part in either an international trip during their spring break or to complete the BUAD 550 during their first spring semester in the program.
The international trip will include company visits, guest lecturers, and local tours throughout the host country. The goal of the course is to immerse students in the culture of the host country, to expand the student’s global understanding, and to explore international business opportunities. Travel expenses for the international trip option are NOT included in the total cost of the program; however, the tuition for the course is included.
Students who do not participate in the international trip will be enrolled in the BUAD 550 - International Business course conducted at the off-site location during the spring semester of the first year.
Graduates from the Off-site MBA program receive a Masters of Business Administration in general business. Alumni may elect to complete additional course work to earn a concentration and masters-level certification in a number of business fields through the MBA Plus program by taking courses on Main Campus.
