Standardized tests (e.g., GMAT, GRE, EA) are a component of the application process and play an important role in the holistic evaluation process of any academic program. Considering challenges brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle, standardized tests are optional* for all MBA and specialized masters (MS) programs.
Applicants who do not submit a standardized test (e.g., GMAT, GRE, EA) are welcome to submit 'Other' supporting evidence to bolster the strength of their application (no more than 5). While each academic program is unique and has distinct requirements, examples of supporting evidence includes, but is not limited to, the examples below; all of which may assist the Admissions Committee in evaluating an applicant’s fit and readiness for graduate business studies.
- Proof of prior knowledge/experience in a subject matter deemed relevant by the program to which you are applying (e.g., computer programming languages [Python, R], statistics, etc.).
- Industry certifications such as CFA, CPA, CAP, PMP, PHR, PE, or Six Sigma.

- Non-degree coursework such as completed MOOC certificates (e.g., Coursera, edX), MBAMath, micro-masters/nanodegrees, or advanced certificates.
