We do not require work experience; however, if you have had some work experience, whether through a part-time job or a summer internship, please include that information in your application so that it may be considered during our review.
The majority of candidates applying to the MM Program are doing so for admission immediately after completing undergraduate coursework. As such, work experience will often be limited to summer internships or other non-full-time experience. Other candidates may have one year of post-undergraduate work experience. We seek diversity in the professional backgrounds of our admitted students, just as we do in other parts of our applicants' profiles. No one industry or field is favored over another. We are more interested in the applicant's contribution to the group or organization and how he/she may have made a difference.
Candidates with two or more years of full-time work experience are encouraged to apply to one of our other graduate degree programs. Class profiles, program descriptions, and admission requirements for each of those programs can be found at this link by clicking on the Programs tab at the top of the screen.
