Work Experience - resume required

One year of work experience is required for the Flex MBA program, and while work experience is not required for the Specialized Master's program at Robinson, it is preferred. It is our belief that the discussion will be richer based on our student's ability to share their professional work experiences in examples and scenarios. Over the past few years, we have noted an average work experience of five to six years from the accepted applicants. 

All applicants must include an updated resume with application.
