Potomac State BAS Graduates Now Have Opportunity to Earn WVU MBA Degree through Tuition-Waiver Scholarships

Potomac State agreement with WVU
Potomac State College of WVU recently signed an articulation agreement, referred to as an MBA Pathway Agreement, with WVU’s College of Business and Economics. This collaboration allows Potomac State BAS graduates in Business Management and Criminal Justice the opportunity to earn an MBA from WVU through tuition-waiver scholarships.

Students graduating from Potomac State College of West Virginia University with a Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degree in either Business Management or Criminal Justice now have the opportunity to seamlessly pursue and earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from WVU’s College of Business and Economics through tuition-waiver scholarships.

A recent articulation agreement between the two schools will allow Potomac State graduates in the Business Management and Criminal Justice programs with a 3.0 GPA at the time of application and graduation and a score of 600 on the GMAT a provisional admission into WVU’s MBA program pending a verification of the completion of all program prerequisites. Students will need to meet the prerequisite requirements including Understanding Statistics, Survey of Business Law, Principles of Accounting, Principles of Micro/Macro Economics, and Business Ethics courses (or complete the equivalent online courses through Ivy Software) prior to the first day of MBA classes.

Students will be eligible to earn tuition-waiver scholarships based on high GMAT scores. Students who score 650-690 on the GMAT will be eligible for half-tuition waivers while students who score 700 and above on the GMAT will be eligible for full-tuition waivers.

According to Potomac State’s Interim Dean of Academic Affairs Edem Tetteh, “The benefits of this agreement to Potomac State students include GMAT prep material, the opportunity to earn scholarships based on GMAT scores and full use of the B&E Career Services Center.”

Students will need to apply to the MBA program prior to completing their senior year at Potomac State to receive the full benefit of the agreement. However, students can still apply for the MBA program outside of this agreement.
