MBA Admission Requirements

The Washburn MBA program examines each application on a holistic basis that includes educational background, work history, letters of recommendation and entrance exam scores. As a result, there are no minimum GPAs or test scores that must be attained. This admissions process has allowed Washburn to consistently attract top students with a wide range of backgrounds.

GMAT waivers are available. Therefore, applicants are encouraged to apply even if they have not taken these exams. If the GMAT is required, students will be advised of this during the course of the application review process.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and applicants can expect an admissions decision to be made within ten business days. 

MBA Admission Requirements are as follows:

  • Bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university
  • Official transcripts from school awarding bachelor's degree
  • Two letters of reference
  • $40 application fee
