Is the GMAT/GRE required?
The GMAT/GRE is required for admission to our graduate degree programs. However, we do offer a GMAT/GRE waiver to qualified candidates. To be eligible, an applicant must have relevant work experience and/or an exemplary undergraduate record. The purpose of the GMAT is to help determine the likelihood of a candidate's success in graduate business education by testing verbal, quantitative and analytical skills. If you request a waiver, you should be able to address how you have gained these skills by providing examples of your ability to analyze data and situations, make relevant decisions and construct reasonable plans to achieve goals based on your work experience and education. Contact the Graduate Admissions Office for more information on the GMAT/GRE waiver.
