Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 3.3

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3.3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

All applicants are required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT); however anyone graduating (or anticipating graduating) from an AACSB-accredited business school having completed the equivalent of our U/G management minor (now pre-MBA minor), and earning a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher at the end of the fall semester senior year, or the equivalent, will not be required to submit GMAT scores.
