What are requirements for an MBA program?

You’ll need grit. You’ll need ambition. You’ll need the ability to grow and change.

More practically, MBA requirements typically require completed undergraduate education to enroll in a top-tier program. Most business schools accept students from all areas of undergraduate study, from liberal arts and social sciences to engineering and education.

Your undergraduate program helps you become a better communicator and sharpens your analytical and problem solving skills. Those skills will continue to develop throughout your MBA program, but a special concentration on management and real-world practices will help you focus on your success in business, public, or not-for-profit sectors.

Do I need to take my GMAT or GRE?

The GMAT is the most common test used for entry into MBA programs. However, Willamette University MBA – like many MBA programs – now allow students to choose between the GMAT and GRE.

Neither the GMAT nor GRE are designed to measure any business- or economics-specific knowledge or job skills, but rather general verbal, mathematical and analytical skills.
