School of Business Graduate Referral Program

Your participation in helping promote our Graduate Business Programs is the most powerful marketing tool we have. Referrals from current students, alumni, and business professionals produce highly-qualified applicants.

If you know someone who might be interested in one of our business programs, please refer them by completing the online form below. Upon receiving this information, we will connect with them on your behalf. If your referral results in a full enrollment* into one of our graduate business programs (M.B.A. or MAcc), you will receive a $50 Visa gift card as a thank you.
