MISSOULA – There has never been a better and easier time to earn a graduate degree from the University of Montana College of Business. From Dec. 1 to Feb. 1, the UM College of Business will waive application fees for the Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) and Master of Accountancy (MAcct) programs.

Applicants will need to submit the intent to apply form – online at –in order to receive a code that will waive the $60 application fee. The code can then be entered at the end of the official application process.

For the first time, all three programs are offering flexible delivery, allowing students to earn their degrees in the classroom, online or a combination of the two. Students will also be able to receive a Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) waiver if they have a 3.3 GPA or higher within their major.

Along with graduate assistantships, scholarships are available to UM College of Business students. Last year, over $93,000 in scholarships were awarded specifically to UM College of Business graduate students. Each scholarship recipient receives no lower than $1,000.

The scholarship application for the 2021-22 school year is open from Dec. 1, 2020 – March 1, 2021.

An MBA from UM prepares students to operate in today’s rapidly changing professional environment. The business college will help broaden and deepen the knowledge and skills to meet today’s challenges and succeed in the workplace of the future.

The MAcct program at UM is the only accounting program in the state of Montana to have a separate accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Only 185 programs – just 1.5 % of the world’s business schools – have attained accreditation in both the accounting program and business school. UM MAcct alumni pass the CPA exam at rates far above national averages, and 95% of students have jobs on graduation day.

Data has become more than a trend, it’s the new language of business. The MSBA prepares graduates for successful careers in the newest frontier of the professional environment – at the intersection of business, statistics and computing.
