Executive MBA


Applicants are required to submit a GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions Test) score as part of their application unless they have been granted a waiver. The Admissions Committee will need an official score before students start the program, however, applicants may submit an unofficial score during the application process.

You should add Chicago Booth to your list of schools having access to your GMAT scores through Pearson VUE and ACT, Inc. via www.mba.com. Our school codes are:

  • Chicago H9X-9F-66
  • London H9X-9F-28
  • Hong Kong H9X-9F-71

The GMAT score is valid if the test was taken less than five years before the date of the application deadline. The test date makes no difference in the assessment of an application as long as it was within the past five years.

GMAT Waiver

Very senior level managers who have evidence of strong quantitative skills may be granted an exemption from the GMAT/GRE requirement. Examples of those with this background include CEOs, Managing Directors, CFOs and Division Heads. Evidence establishing such skills may come from one or more sources: university-level coursework in quantitative subjects (examples include statistics, economics, and financial accounting), professional certification indicating a high level of quantitative proficiency (such as CFA Level I), or work experience and training that indicate a high level of quantitative and analytical skill and an ability to apply those skills to a rigorous and analytical MBA program. The criteria above are not meant to be exhaustive, and candidates who believe they are able to provide evidence of similar quality not listed are encouraged to speak to an admissions representative.
