Missouri State University and Evangel University have announced they are expanding their relationship, making it easier for students at EU to enroll in some MSU programs.
The memorandum of understanding between the schools applies for MSU’s accelerated master’s degree programs in business, accounting, and cybersecurity.
“Because Evangel students have been such a welcome addition to our College of Business graduate programs, we wanted to reduce barriers for their students to enter our MBA, Master of Accountancy, and MS in Cybersecurity programs,” Dr. Elizabeth J. Rozell, associate dean of the College of Business and Kenneth E. Meyer professor of management at Missouri State University, said in a statement.
The accelerated program allows students to be given admission to the master’s program and then dual-enroll in classes during their junior and senior years. Students from Evangel will have to meet the same criteria as Missouri State students along with at least a 3.6 grade point average.
“We know from past experience that Evangel students are well-prepared for graduate study in business, so removing the GMAT requirement was an easy decision to make. The agreement further strengthens our strategic partnership with Evangel,” said Rozell.
