Students who have their degree from outside of the U.S. may be asked to submit a TOEFL score. Below are the minimum scores accepted by the EMBA program.

Internet Based TOEFL (IBT): 93, with no less than a 20 in any of the four sections
Computer Based TOEFL (CBT): 237
Paper Based TOEFL (PBT): 580

For more information on the TOEFL, please contact ETS at 1-800-GO-TOEFL.

GMAT/GRE: The GMAT or GRE is not a mandatory requirement for all applicants. Each year we carefully evaluate every applicant to create a comprehensive and diverse class who will benefit from the academic experience as well as their colleagues within the cohort. We ask that applicants demonstrate an ability to successfully complete quantitative course work. If we cannot find evidence of success in undergraduate or graduate quantitative course work, you may be asked to demonstrate abilities in other ways (e.g., GMAT).

No portion of the portfolio is weighted more than another; the admissions committee considers the entire application to ensure that they have a complete profile of a candidate’s professional and academic qualifications.
