  • The total score and verbal and quantitative percentiles, and where available the analytical writing assessment (AWA) score, on the GMAT standards set by the individual graduate programs in business.
  • Work experience at the post-baccalaureate level, where applicable.
  • Leadership and communication skills as documented in a goals statement and resume.
  • A minimum of two letters of recommendation.
  • Submission of results on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for all applicants whose native language is not English.
