Graduate Admissions Requirements
Loeb-Sullivan School invites applications from all individuals interested in pursuing challenging new opportunities in international business, maritime management, and supply chain management.
Applicants must possess an accredited baccalaureate degree or equivalent but holding a business degree is not a prerequisite. Applicant selection is based on evidence of academic capability demonstrated by college grade-point average, scores on either the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), and evidence of motivation for completing the program as demonstrated by the candidate’s personal statement of intent and letters of recommendation. Essay responses are critical for this writing intensive program.
Are you ready to begin the application process? Please note application items below that are required to process your application for both the M.S. in International Logistics Management (online) and M.S. in Maritime Management (hybrid) degree programs.
☐ APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION
Apply to the Graduate School by submitting an online application. If you would like a written copy for your records, please contact the administrative coordinator of the graduate school at email@example.com or 207-326-2212. For applications submitted electronically, there is no application fee.
Please mail a copy of your transcript from each post-secondary institution you have attended directly to Maine Maritime Academy. We cannot accept email submissions or scanned copies. If you received your undergraduate degree from MMA, no action is required as we will request your transcript directly from the Registrar’s Office.
TWO (2) LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION
A Letter of Recommendation request, academic or professional, will automatically be emailed to two (2) individuals of your selection when you complete the online application.
Please submit a current curriculum vitae or resume with your application.
PERSONAL STATEMENT OF INTEREST
The Personal Statement of Interest should answer the following questions: How will your admission to the Loeb-Sullivan School help you achieve your professional goals? Why do you want to study logistics?
☐ GMAT OR GRE SCORES
The Loeb-Sullivan School has adjusted its admission requirement for the GRE/GMAT test scores during the Covid-19 situation. The GRE/GMAT test scores are still required for full admission into the graduate program; however, due to testing centers being closed or offering limited hours, applications will be accepted without GRE/GMAT scores with the understanding that the GRE/GMAT must be taken in the near term. The Admissions Committee will review a student’s admission packet and render their decision based upon the other required components. Accepted students will receive a provisional acceptance when submitting their application without test scores. Once the test scores are received, a full acceptance into the program will be granted.
GRE/GMAT test scores are normally required. Applicants may petition to waive the test if they hold a previous Master’s degree. Official test scores should be sent directly to the Graduate School by the testing service. Test scores more than five years old cannot be accepted. Student copies and photocopies of scores are not considered official. Our GRE and GMAT Institutional Code is 3505.
☐ ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY REQUIREMENT – INTERNATIONAL CANDIDATES ONLY
Proficiency in English is required for graduate study at Maine Maritime Academy. Every applicant whose language of education is not English must demonstrate English proficiency. Applicants may submit results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Examination results should be sent directly to Maine Maritime Academy, Loeb-Sullivan School Department of Graduate Studies by the testing agency. Our institutional code is 3505. No scans or copies will be accepted. As this is a requirement of admission, we do not offer a waiver.
☐ NON-U.S. DIPLOMAS, CERTIFICATES, LICENSES, AND TRANSCRIPTS – INTERNATIONAL CANDIDATES ONLY
A four-year baccalaureate degree, or equivalent, is normally the minimum academic certification required for admission. All non-U.S. diplomas, certificates, licenses, and transcripts must be evaluated by an approved clearinghouse. Clearinghouses verify international transcripts for: authenticity, grade and course equivalency, and transfer credits awarded. The Loeb-Sullivan School recognizes the following two evaluation service providers:
