Admission to the Whitman iMBA program is highly selective. Applicants who meet the minimum criteria are not automatically admitted to the program.To be considered for admission, an applicant must possess at a minimum:
- A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from a regionally accredited college or university, and
- One year of professional full-time work experience
The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is required as part of the application process unless you possess five years or more of professional work experience. The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) may be required for applicants whose native language is not English.
No formula is employed in admission decision-making. Candidates are evaluated individually, with special consideration given to professional experience and accomplishments, including potential for career growth and advancement. Other factors considered are the candidate's prior academic success, the GMAT exam, and communication skills as evidenced in the application essays and the required admission interview.
Historically, one of the Whitman School's greatest strengths has been the diversity of its student body. We continue to seek candidates with diverse racial, ethnic, social, academic, and professional backgrounds and career goals.
