Gain admission to a top-tier business school directly after completion of a Knox degree.
Knox is a partner with the prestigious University of Rochester Simon School of Business, where qualified Knox juniors and seniors can apply for an M.B.A. through the Direct Admission program.
Most top business schools require students to gain between four to six years of work experience after completion of their bachelor's degree and before applying to business school. The Direct Admission program selects students as early as the end of their junior year at Knox.
Students who are granted Direct Admission will receive a minimum $5,000 per year merit scholarship, and highly qualified students could receive a merit scholarship of up to $30,000 per year.
Students selected must show strong leadership potential and academic preparation—regardless of their major—and complete a business-related internship or work experience to prepare them for the rigors of the M.B.A. program. Applicants to the Direct Admission Program do not need to take the GMAT to receive admission but will need to do so to receive scholarship consideration beyond the minimum level offered.
