The admission decision will be based on a composite profile of the applicant including test scores, academic background, grades, work experience, letters of reference, and also the statement of purpose. The typical admitted student in the MABA program has at least a 2.7 undergraduate GPA and 480 on the GMAT or equivalent score in the GRE. Additional requirements include proficiency in spreadsheets and a programming language and a calculus course with C or better, both of which may be met by taking courses if necessary after a provisional admission. The following documents are required for admission to the program:

1.   Official transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended.

2.   Official GMAT scores sent directly from the Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) or GRE score sent directly by the educational testing service to the College of Graduate Studies. The minimum GMAT score is 480 (equivalent score in the GRE) and must be no more than five years old.

3.   The GMAT may be waived for applicants who have earned:

a.     An undergraduate degree or MBA from UToledo (minimum 3.0 GPA) within the last ten years


b.     A Master in Economics, Statistics, Mathematics or Engineering (minimum 3.00 GPA) within the last ten years

4.   Most recent resume or curriculum vitae including contact information for two references (name, title, place of employment, phone number and e-mail address).

5.   A 400-word essay on statement of purpose.

In the case of students whose native language is not English, a score of 80 or above on the TOEFL IBT, PTE equal to 58 or above, Duolingo equal to 105 or above, or a 6.5 or above on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is mandatory.
