  • Applicant has earned professional designations such as CPCU®, CPA®, CFA®.
  • Academic waivers may be granted in cases where courses in undergraduate business or other graduate programs have been completed.

To be considered for a GMAT waiver, candidates must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Document at least three years of relevant professional experience that shows increased responsibilities over that period.
  • A transcript showing undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher from a regionally accredited college or university in any major.

Meeting the criteria to waive the GMAT does not guarantee admission to the M.B.A. program.
