  • Must have 30 credit hours of coursework or professional experience in accounting, business, computer science, computer-related engineering, information systems or information technology.
  • Resume.
  • Proficiency in English-language professional communications demonstrated by undergraduate courses, professional experience, or both. Students who lack proficiency may be admitted provisionally but must complete one or two undergraduate professional communication courses selected by the faculty advisor or admission committee in the first two semesters with grades of B or better.
  • Plan of Study. A plan of study is a custom-designed curriculum created by the applicant and the MS-ISA director. Applicants must schedule to meet with Professor Ranjit Bose to create it. Email him at rbose@unm.edu.
  • A score equal to or greater than 500 on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score equal to or greater than 500 for the "predicted GMAT total score" when using this conversion tool.

Advisement prior to first-semester enrollment and a formal plan of study is mandatory. Individual students will be advised to enroll in specific classes that match their intended career path and complement their bachelor's degree and work experience. Plan of study approvals will be granted by a designated faculty advisor or committee.
