Admissions Requirements

Admission to the Master of Science program in International Apparel Management requires the applicant to have a baccalaureate degree in apparel or textile management, business, or a related discipline.

An overall undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 (B) or better is required. Applicants whose GPA falls between 2.5 and 3.0 will be considered for admission on a conditional basis if evidence of compensating qualifications, such as extensive industry experience, is demonstrated.

A Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or a Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) score (minimum score of 450) is required from those applicants whose overall GPA in undergraduate work falls below 3.0, or if the bachelor’s degree has been awarded from a non-accredited university or college (this includes foreign institutions), or if the applicant has not attended an accredited institution within the past seven years.

Application Procedures

Application procedures include a two-part process. Prospective applicants must complete an application through CSU Apply and submit official transcripts from all universities and colleges attended. Applicants must also submit a statement of purpose that identifies their discipline focus and two letters of recommendation from individuals able to assess the applicant’s potential for success in master’s level academic performance.

Applicants with an undergraduate degree in other disciplines, and those who do not fully satisfy other department or university graduate admission requirements may be considered for possible conditional admission. These conditions may include additional coursework, minimum scholarship, compensating strengths, or other requirements. Candidates with conditional status are provided a written statement of entrance conditions, including the time within which the conditions are to be met.

Students in conditional standing must satisfactorily complete 12 units with a GPA of 3.0 or higher before becoming eligible for unconditional graduate standing. If the conditions are not satisfied, the candidate will be denied further enrollment in the program.
