William & Mary Online MBA Admissions and Application Requirements
At the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, we seek dynamic and driven applicants who are ready to proactively make a difference in the workplace and redefine what it means to be a leader. Our ideal candidates are career-minded individuals who are open to novel problem-solving techniques, are willing to experiment and grow from failure, and who embrace the challenges and rewards of balancing work, school and family.
We accept applicants from a wide range of academic fields and professional disciplines, but all are required to have:
- A minimum of two years professional working experience
- A bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from a regionally accredited college or university
No GMAT Required
At the Raymond A. Mason School of Business, we are committed to holistically evaluating applicants and considering all aspects of their professional and academic backgrounds. We understand that standardized tests are not always, or even often, the best indicators of a candidate's readiness to succeed, particularly the highly accomplished professionals who apply to our Online MBA program.
For this reason, we do not require GMAT or GRE scores for admission to the Online MBA program. Applicants may, however, submit scores for consideration if they believe that doing so will be beneficial to their application.
