Our priority is to set-up our working professional students for success - during the application process, inside the classroom, and well beyond graduation throughout your dynamic and prosperous career.
As an applicant, the admissions committee will consider all of the elements of your application that indicate your potential success as a student:
- Future managerial and leadership potential, which is assessed through your personal statements, professional experiences, and letters of recommendation.
- Indications that you can thrive in our rigorous academic environment demonstrated by your educational transcripts.
- Communication skills
- Community engagement/ leadership
Why we don't require GMAT or GRE scores
GMAT or GRE scores are always accepted and will be considered by the admissions committee in the decision-making process if received. However, in William & Mary's Executive MBA program, we believe that standardized test scores are not the only predictors of success - and certainly not for our executive-level students who have multi-dimensional applications that point to many success indicators. So, we do not require a GMAT or GRE score in order to apply.
Data indicates that completing an MBA-specific prerequisite will prepare you for the quantitative coursework that is an integral part of the MBA curriculum. Therefore, all admitted students are required to complete an online prerequisite course on MBAMath.com.
The MBAMath.com course covers the functional areas of accounting, economics, finance, statistics, and spreadsheets. You must achieve 100% competency in all five functional areas by working through the learning modules and taking the assessments. Once you have reached 100% in all five areas, an official transcript can be sent through the MBAMath.com portal to the admissions office, which will fulfill the prerequisite requirement. The MBAMath.com course must be completed no later than December 15th, before the Program officially beings in January. MBAMath.com is offered by an outside company and costs $149.00, payable by the admitted student.
