Contact the Office of International Programs with any questions regarding the university application process, English language proficiency requirement or Immigration-related inquiries.

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 Education 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 and other required materials 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).
