There, literally, are hundreds of graduate business and economics programs in the US alone.  No list can be expected to be exhaustive.  Extensive, searchable databases of graduate programs are available at Peterson's Graduate Programs and at

You should be aware that better graduate programs can be quite selective.  Among the criteria considered for admission will be: undergraduate QPA (3.00 or higher is recommended), scores on graduate entrance exams (GMAT, GRE), reference letters from faculty or employers, and admissions essays.  While many Bachelor's degree graduates may eventually progress to a Master's degree, you should also be aware that many doctorate programs in business and economics will also accept students with just the Bachelor's degree.  In these cases, admitted students would be expected to have relatively high undergraduate QPAs and good performance on entrance exams.  The market for doctorate graduates in business is very strong is academically strong students should consider this option.



The Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC), the organization that conducts the GMAT examination, has a website for people considering pursuing an MBA:  In addition to information on the GMAT, the site has information on determining if an MBA is right for you, evaluating and selecting MBA programs, and other germane topics.


Edinboro University has Articulation Agreements with two graduate schools offering an MBA.  These Articulation Agreements facilitate entry to these schools and grant credit for their various admission prerequisite requirements.
