Academic Transcripts (Required)
We accept a scanned copy of your university transcripts for evaluative purposes. We do not accept records that you have downloaded for personal use.
Acceptable documents must include the university/college name, your name, degree conferred with the date (if applicable), grade point average, and all courses with grades received. We require transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate institutions you attended.
If you are admitted to the program, you will be required to submit official transcripts at the time of your enrollment deposit. Please plan ahead.
Essays (Two Required, One Optional)
The essays play an important role within your application and give you an opportunity to tell us a bit more about you and what you hope to achieve with your Gabelli School degree. The best essays are genuine and concise (and meet the word count limit).
Interviews are by invitation only and are required for all applicants who remain competitive following our initial application review.
- Interviews are conducted by members of the admissions staff, faculty members, current students, or alumni.
- Applicants should prepare for a 25- to 30-minute interview.
- Interviews are offered on select days throughout the week on a space-available basis. Interviews should be scheduled at least ten (10) days prior to the date you would like to interview.
- Applicants who are local (within the New York City vicinity) are expected to attend an in-person interview.
A one- or two-page résumé containing your employment and educational background is required with your application. The employment section on your résumé should include locations, titles, and dates, starting with your most recent position. The education section should include the degree awarded date and degrees received.
Letters of Recommendation (One required, one optional)
We require one (1) letter of recommendation and one is optional. Your recommenders should be able to assess your strengths, provide characteristics or attributes that best describe you, and define your ability to succeed in our graduate program. Ideally, the recommendation would come from an immediate supervisor, but this could also come from a professional colleague, or if you are in B2B, this could be from a client or vendor you may have a business relationship with.
Please note: All recommendations must be submitted electronically. Instructions for requesting the recommendation are located within our application.
Optional Standardized Test Scores (GMAT/GRE/EA)
Standardized tests (e.g., GMAT, GRE, EA) are a component of the application process and play an important role in our holistic evaluation process. Considering challenges brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle, standardized tests of GMAT, GRE, or Executive Assessment will be OPTIONAL for all Professional MBA applicants.
