International students applying to the Washburn MBA program must:
- Already have a university credential that is equivalent to a US bachelor’s degree
- Satisfy the admission requirements for the Washburn University MBA program. Among the requirements is a score of 450 or better on the GMAT exam and a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale
- Have your transcripts from any non-US institutions evaluated by a recognized evaluation service at your expense. Washburn University requires a course-by-course report from either Educational Credential Evaluators or from the World Evaluation Services
- Take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and request that scores be reported directly to the School of Business, Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas 66621. Students without a score or with a low score should seek admission to the Intensive English Program. Native speakers of English or students who have earned a four-year degree from a US college or university are exempt from these requirements.
- Submit the required international application to the Office of International Programs. The international application fee is $70 US (Note: this fee is separate from the $40 US MBA application fee).
