FIFC has a rolling admission policy. Admission is the process by which a student submits a completed application, sends official transcripts and other documents, and fulfills all admission requirements. In most cases, an interview with FIFC administrators will also be required. Admission into the MBV graduate degree program occurs when the application process is complete and the Admissions Committee determines that the applicant possesses the skills and abilities necessary to succeed in FIFC’s academically rigorous program. Meeting all minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the MBV program. After being granted program admission, the student may then proceed to register for and take classes. FIFC is dedicated to assisting you through the process quickly and efficiently, and is there to answer questions during the enrollment process. Applicants can telephone the Admissions Office at (561) 440-0253 or contact us at info@fifc.college. Application for Admission Submitting FIFC’s application requirements can be done in three simple steps: 1) Submit a completed Admission Application online 2) Pay the $50 non-refundable application fee (If required) 3) Request all required materials to be sent directly to FIFC’s Admissions Office Necessary supporting documents must originate from the appropriate source and m a y b e submitted by U.S. mail, fax, or email. Please note that academic tests (i.e. GMAT) are not necessarily required, however, a strong mathematics background is needed to successfully complete the program. The Admissions Committee will not review an admission file until it contains all required materials. Minimum Academic Admission Requirements No one is admitted to FIFC Graduate Program without a Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. university/college or its international equivalent. Admission is open to students holding bachelor’s degrees in any major. However, a careful review of each applicant’s credentials will be conducted in order to ensure the potential for success in the MBV program. Applicants should possess strong foundations in business mathematics and quantitative analysis, as these are the prerequisite technical skills needed to succeed in financial analysis and valuation. The requisite math background includes at least one semester of calculus and one semester of statistics. The suggested additional math foundation includes working knowledge of Excel modeling, one semester of economics, one semester of matrix algebra, and familiarity with computer programming. With this in mind, applicants who are not admitted to the MBV program due to insufficient math preparation may be provided an opportunity for conditional admission, meaning that, upon successful completion of the recommended prerequisite courses, the applicant will be admitted. Regular admission requires an individual to possess, at a minimum, the following: 1) An undergraduate GPA of at least a 3.0 on a 4.0 grading system, or international equivalency, including the math prerequisites 2) Those candidates not meeting the minimum GPA requirement must have taken the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) within the last five years and scored a total of 650 or above 3) Those candidates not meeting the prerequisite bachelor’s degree math requirement may submit a curriculum vitae demonstrating recognized competency in the business valuation profession during a period of at least three years. 4) Exceptions to these requirements may be made in cases where the applicant has passed an advanced business exam to earn a designation, such as the CFA or CPA. Transcripts All students applying for admission must submit an official bachelor’s or master’s degree transcript. An “official transcript” is an unopened, original transcript that is mailed, faxed, or emailed directly from the previous college to FIFC. International students may be required at their own expense also to submit a credential evaluation. The evaluating body must be a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).
