Located in Huntsville, Alabama, the United States, Alabama A&M University (AAMU) is a higher education institution that offers a variety of MBA programs through its School of Business and Public Affairs. From full-time to part-time and executive options, AAMU has a program to fit the needs and schedules of various professionals. The full-time MBA program is ideal for recent graduates or those with up to three years of work experience, while the part-time program allows working professionals to enhance their skills at their own pace. The executive MBA program, on the other hand, is geared towards experienced professionals looking to take their careers to the next level.
Admission requirements for AAMU’s MBA programs vary depending on the program, but a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of two years of work experience are usually required for the full-time and part-time programs. The executive MBA program may have slightly different requirements, such as a higher level of work experience. GMAT scores are typically required for all MBA programs at AAMU, although exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
AAMU’s MBA programs are primarily on-campus, with some online components. The language of instruction is English, and the medium of instruction is English as well. The student body at AAMU’s School of Business and Public Affairs is diverse and includes individuals from various countries and backgrounds.
AAMU’s School of Business and Public Affairs has received accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), and its MBA programs have received high rankings.
The MBA Program is an integral part of the College of Business and Public Affairs, whose mission is to provide a high quality management education that promotes the development of student’s potential as managers, entrepreneurs, and leaders, as well as productive employees and socially-responsible individuals. The objectives include:

To prepare graduates for doctoral programs.
Applicants for regular admission to the MBA program must meet all the requirements for admission to the Graduate School as well as the following:
1. Minimum GPA of 2.50 based on a 4.00 system.
2. Submit academic records.
3. Submit two letters of recommendation, each with appropriate signatures.
4. Submit a resume.
5. Submit a 200-250 statement of purpose.
6. GMAT score of at least 350 or GRE score of 146 verbal and 140 quantitative minimum. A waiver of the GMAT/GRE requirement will be considered if the candidate can verify a minimum of ten years of mid- to upper-level management experience.
Applicants should have their completed application form, along with official copies of their GMAT/GRE scores and official academic transcripts sent directly to the Dean of Graduate Studies.
Those granted conditional admission, however, will attain full admission status earning a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 in their first nine credit hours in courses recommended by MBA Director in order to continue in the program.
Requirements for Good Academic Standing, Suspension, and Expulsion
Students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher in all courses taken toward the MBA degree are in good academic standing. Students with less than a 3.0 GPA are placed on probation and will be allowed to re-enroll up to two semesters with probationary status. A student with grades below “C” in more than two MBA courses, however, will be suspended from the MBA program.
While suspended, the student cannot register for any MBA courses. In addition, no courses taken whether at Alabama A&M University or at any other institution during the period of suspension will be counted toward the MBA degree. If granted permission to return following suspension, a student will have two semesters to raise his/her GPA to at least 3.0. The failure to do so will lead to the student being expelled from the program.
