- We accept both GMAT and GRE for managerial aptitude assessment.
- Ross' GRE reporting code is 1839. There is no code required for the GMAT. Request GMAC to send your score report to the University of Michigan.
- Scores for both GMAT and GRE are valid for five years from the date you took the test to the date of the application deadline.
- We encourage you to request ETS or GMAC to release your results to the Ross School before submitting your application.
- If you have taken tests more than once, we will use your highest total score and the corresponding breakout scores in evaluating your qualification. We do not mix and match scores.
- Applicants wanting to strengthen their application with improved scores may take additional tests through December 31, 2020. Please inform the Global MBA Office of future test dates at email@example.com. For tests taken by December 31, your application will be held until the results are reported to the University.
Due to circumstances related to COVID-19, GMAT/GRE waivers are available to qualified applicants seeking Winter 2021 admission. Please see below for eligibility criteria.
SPECIAL NOTE: If circumstances related to COVID-19 make it difficult for you to complete the GMAT or GRE and you have more than four years of full-time professional work experience, you may be eligible to receive a test waiver.
- Waivers are available only for students applying to enroll in the Global MBA program for the February 2021 start.
- If you meet the criteria below, please attach your resume and all transcripts (unofficial) in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request a waiver.
- Performance on standardized testing is just one component of the application. The admissions committee reviews applications in a holistic manner; therefore, receiving a test waiver does not guarantee admission.
- Candidates who do not meet waiver criteria are welcome to apply by including valid GMAT or GRE results with their application requirements.
In order to qualify for a waiver, the candidate must have at least 48 months of full-time professional work experience (post completion of undergraduate degree). Candidates must also meet two additional criteria (at least one from each section):
Hold an advanced degree (masters, doctoral, or professional degree)
Have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.25 or higher
Earned a B or better in at least four quantitative courses (accounting, finance, economics, statistics, calculus, quantitative methods) throughout academic career (undergraduate and graduate combined)
Hold a CPA, CFA, or similar certification demonstrating quantitative proficiency
