Duquesne's Palumbo-Donahue School of Business is reducing barriers to entry for students from small liberal arts colleges looking to take on a horizon expanding education in graduate business programs.

The new fleet of agreements offers GMAT/GRE waivers for applications to all graduate business programs and guaranteed merit scholarships for select programs to students at partnered liberal arts institutions.

Qualified, accepted students can choose from 10 graduate programs within the School of Business, including top-ranked Master of Business Administration programs, and specialized masters and certificate programs. To be eligible, students must earn a cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 (3.25 to qualify for the GMAT/GRE waiver), achieve "senior-level enrollment status," and provide the necessary application forms and transcripts.

"These partnerships smooth the pathway to admission to our AACSB-accredited, nationally-ranked graduate programs," says Chris Rouhier, director of graduate admissions in the School of Business. "The colleges with whom we've partnered offer robust business programs and share Duquesne's mission of educating competent professionals who will lead lives of service and significance. We look forward to developing additional partnerships in the future."

So far, the School of Business has established partnerships with Linfield University (Oregon), Davis and Elkins College (West Virginia), Bethany College (West Virginia), Albright College (Pennsylvania) and McDaniel College (Maryland).
