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.
