The School of Business MBA Program is pleased to offer a limited number of graduate assistantships to its most competitive admitted applicants. Graduate assistantship offers are made typically 3-6 months before the semester begins. Most positions are awarded between March 15-April 15, begin in August, and are for nine months, though sometimes GA positions may start in January or be for a single semester. Graduate assistants provide research, teaching, and service assistance to School of Business faculty and programs.
