Most of them possess over five years of managerial experience, including supervisory budgetary and/or project management. In addition, they earned their undergraduate degrees with average GPA of 3.3 out of a 4.0 scale.

Candidates are expected to show excellent quantitative, writing and interpersonal skills. Graduate admission tests (GMAT/GRE) may be requested when other qualities of the candidate are not up to par with the rest of the pool. We also may require online modules of candidates in quantitative areas (accounting, finance or statistics) prior to admission.

Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)

The GMAT tests abilities that you have developed over a long period of time; it is not intended to test specific subject areas, nor does it presuppose any prior business coursework.
