Applicants for the Haskayne MBA programs are evaluated based on thoughtful consideration on how the program will help them achieve their professional goals and how the rest of the cohort will benefit from their participation.
The quality of the MBA experience is critically dependent on the diversity and character of the cohort. The admissions committee therefore considers a wide range of factors in its admission decisions and views each applicant from a holistic perspective.
To be considered for admission to the Haskayne MBA programs, an application should fulfill the following criteria:
A GPA of 3.0 (out of 4.0) or higher in the last two years of a four year undergraduate degree from an accredited university; AND
At least two years’ professional work experience after graduation; AND
A score of 550 or higher in the GMAT exam. (Or an acceptable equivalent score on the GRE exam.)
Applicants for whom English is not a first language must also achieve either:
A score of 97 or higher on the internet version of the TOEFL; OR
A score of 7 or higher on the academic version of the IELTS.
Applying to the Haskayne MBA programs involves six steps.
To assist you with your planning please note that the most time-consuming steps of the application are typically: GMAT preparation; receipt of official transcripts (particularly from international institutions); and references.
