  • strong evidence of advanced quantitative and analytical reasoning skills
  • a master's degree in a quantitative discipline, or
  • an advanced degree such as JD, PhD or MD.

Individuals seeking the GMAT waiver should meet with the MBA academic success coach to discus this option and the process prior to applying.

TOEFL or IELTS scores are required. If you received a baccalaureate degree (or higher) in residence from an accredited English-medium U.S. college or university or a college or university in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, English-speaking province of Canada, or an English-speaking Caribbean country, with instruction conducted in English, you will not be required to provide English proficiency scores. Degrees earned online may not be used to verify English proficiency. Please consult the MBA academic success coach for questions.
