MTA Admission

Application Requirements

Essay/Statement of Purpose

  • One essay. In an essay limited to 500 words, discuss your long-term and short-term professional objectives and how your past experiences have contributed to and defined these objectives. Include in your statement why you want to pursue a graduate business degree at this point in time. If any include related qualifications, including collegiate, professional, and community activities, and any other substantial accomplishments not previously mentioned in the application.

Additional Application Requirements

Transcripts

  • All admitted students will be required to submit official, sealed academic transcripts with proof of their bachelor’s degree. There is no need to submit transcripts at the time when you first apply; you may do so after admission. Once admitted, please submit transcripts from all of the colleges and/or universities you have attended where you received 15 credits or more, whether or not a degree program was completed or the credits appear as transfer credits on another transcript.

    International applicants should upload the English-language version of their transcripts or a copy of a credentialed evaluation. For a list of acceptable foreign credential evaluation services, please visit nacs.org.

Standardized Test Scores

  • GMAT Score or GRE Score*: Test date must be within past five years. GMAT code: QK4-4F-40; GRE code: 5246

    *Applicants are welcome to request a GMAT/GRE waiver which will be at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. Several factors are considered in the review of a waiver request, including the rigor of prior undergraduate and graduate coursework, academic performance, evidence of quantitative and analytical skills, prior work experience, current job responsibilities, and professional certifications. Applicants must submit a completed application in order to be considered for a waiver. Please include a brief summary in your application that outlines why you believe you are qualified for the test score waiver. Note that this is not a promise to waive your GMAT requirement, but rather an option for you to request a waiver of this requirement. Please contact [email protected] for more details. Not eligible for a test waiver? George Washington University applicants can benefit from 10% off any Kaplan GMAT or GRE preparation course. Use discount code GWUSB10.
