MBA Admissions Test

The intended purpose of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) Admission test is to assess a prospective student's capacity to succeed in the MBA program. Although the test does not measure business knowledge or skill, it allows us to asses a prospective MBA student's analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal and reading skills in preparation for being admitted into the MBA program. The exam should be taken by those who meet the program's other admissions criteria (please refer to the Graduate Admissions Prospectus). You may retake the exam only once.
