A GMAT/GRE score is required for application to the Isenberg Online MBA unless a waiver is granted or you hold a doctorate degree from an accredited institution. A strong GMAT/GRE score enhances any application. You MAY be exempt from the GMAT/GRE requirement if you meet any of the following criteria:
Doctorate Degree: Automatic waiver will be applied, and no waiver application required, for a JD, PhD, PharmD, MD/DO, or international medical graduate with an ECFMG or Fifth Pathway
Master’s Degree and 2 years of professional work experience
Bachelor’s Degree and 5 years of professional work experience
Bachelor’s Degree from the Isenberg School of Management and 3 years of professional work experience
Bachelor’s Degree from UMass Amherst and 3 years of professional work experience with a GPA of 3.0 or higher in two quantitative courses
If you are interested in requesting a GMAT/GRE waiver before you apply to the program, please complete the WAIVER APPLICATION FORM. We will respond within 2-3 business days and let you know if you qualify for a conditional waiver based on your self-reported information, which will be verified upon application submission. All GMAT/GRE waivers are considered on a case-by-case basis and an approved waiver does not guarantee admission to the program. You can find our admissions requirements here.
Please use the information as it would appear on your application for admission to the university.
Average GMAT Score: The average score for students in the program is 590.
*For those students who’ve earned an Undergraduate and Master’s Degree outside of the US: To be considered for a GMAT waiver an official course-by-course evaluation (listing grades and overall GPA) will need to be submitted from an approved NACES evaluation service provider. Applicants commonly use WES or ECE. Along with your evaluation, you will also need to submit official transcripts/marksheets from your institution or notarized “true & attested” copies of originals are also accepted upon submission via US mail.
Note: At the discretion of the department, applications will continue to be reviewed after the application deadline on a space-available basis.
