MBA Program Admissions

The George Washington University School of Business (GWSB) holds applicants to all of our MBA programs to the same competitive admissions standards. The admissions committee bases decisions on an applicant’s academic preparation and performance, work experience, and strength of recommendations, essays, and interviews. The GRE or GMAT test is not required — however, if you feel that submitting your scores will strengthen your application, you are welcome to submit them.
