Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

If the applicant chooses the GMAT, it is preferred that the applicant's cumulative GPA* multiplied by 200, plus the applicant's GMAT score, equals 950 at a minimum. For example, an applicant whose cumulative GPA is 3.0 and GMAT score is 500 meets our preferred GMAT result of 950 because the 3.0 GPA times 200 (=600), plus the GMAT score of 500, equals 1,100 - thus exceeding our preferred GMAT result of 950.

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).

  • If the applicant chooses the GRE, our "preferred" GRE result is a combined score of 300 (with a minimum Verbal section score of 150 and a minimum Writing section score of 4.0).

    This programme accepts GRE® scores. However, it does not provide a recommended score range.
