As of 3/26/2020 Temporary suspension of GMAT scores and official transcripts for MBA for Fall 2020 admissions only.

Announcement from Dr. Charles Gengler, 
Dean of the Marilyn Davies College of Business 

In light of the many difficulties students are facing with cities shut down across the country, the Marilyn Davies College of Business will temporarily suspend consideration of the following materials for admission to its graduate programs until further notice:

  • GRE and GMAT test scores
  • Official TOEFL test scores: instead, applicants will be asked to use other means of demonstrating English proficiency
  • Official transcripts: instead, unofficial transcripts must be submitted with application materials followed by official transcripts before the end of the first semester of registration.

In the absence of test scores and official transcripts, graduate admission committees will holistically review each application and temporarily modify the weights applied to the remaining admission criteria. The same overarching goal must be maintained: to admit students whose application materials demonstrate a likelihood to be successful in the graduate program and, ultimately, in their chosen career. Students will be expected to produce official transcripts by the end of the Fall 2020 semester to remain in the program.

Applicants are evaluated on all elements within the application – no one individual component is more important than another; rather, all elements are taken into consideration to select individuals in the program who demonstrates scholastic ability, motivation, managerial experience and potential. The application and its supporting documents are all weighed together in the decision-making process.
