Professional experience is determined on a case-by-case basis using a resume, and any requested supporting documents. Our admissions committee evaluates an individual's accomplishments, roles, and responsibilities to determine the total number of years of professional experience. UAB considers the individual's managerial responsibilities, role in setting direction & strategy, and his/her role in allocating resources. Normally, professional experience begins at the point of graduation; however, we may consider prior work experience based on type of experience. Students who wish to petition for a GMAT waiver based on professional work experience may submit a resume and unofficial transcript to Christy Manning in MBA Admissions prior to applying.
