Graduate Entrance Exams

The School of Business Administration requires most applicants for graduate programs to complete an entrance exam designed to predict student success in graduate study. These scores are only one criterion used to evaluate prospective graduate students.


The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT®) is a standardized assessment—delivered in English—that helps business schools assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study in business and management. Schools use the test as one predictor of academic performance in an MBA program or in other graduate management programs. The GMAT® exam measures basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that you have developed over a long period of time in your education and work. Most MBA, 4th-Year Bridge MBA, Global MBA, and MS-EDE applicants will satisfy their entrance exam requirements with the GMAT. Learn more or register for a test date.

Some applicants may qualify for a GMAT waiver. Please consult the GMAT waiver policy specific to your program of interest.


The GRE® General Test measures critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. Students applying for admission to the Master of Economic Development and Entrepreneurship may satisfy their entrance exam requirements with the GRE. In addition, many MBA, 4th-Year Bridge MBA, and Global MBA applicants will successfully appeal for a GMAT waiver based on their GRE performance. Learn more or register for a test date.
