How do I get access to SPIRE, UMail and online library resources?
What should I expect after I’ve enrolled in my first course prior to being formally accepted to the program?
After your enrollment request has been processed and you’ve been added to the course, you will receive an email to your Non-UMass email address with instructions to activate your OIT Accounts for UMail (UMass email) and SPIRE (online student information system) . Once this email is sent to you, all future university correspondences will be sent to your UMail email address. Check this email regularly for updates and notices from UMass.
Who should write my professional recommendations?
Your professional recommendations should be written by direct supervisors (current and past), or clients who are familiar with your work.
What should I include in my personal statement? How long should it be?
Your personal statement should be one to two pages in length, and include information about your past and current academic and professional history, your future goals and reasons for pursuing a MBA, and other pertinent details that will help us evaluate you as a candidate.
My transcript is not in English. What do I do?
If your transcript is not in English, you must send us a certified translation of your official transcript from every non-U.S. undergrad and graduate school attended. Notarized and true attested copies of original academic documents are also accepted.
