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, usually with twelve or more years of management experience may be granted an exemption from the GMAT requirement. Examples might include CEOs, Managing Directors, CFOs, and Division Heads, etc. A waiver may also be considered for a candidate whose work experience and training indicate a high level of quantitative and analytical skill and an ability to apply those skills to a rigorous and analytical MBA Program. Examples might include: Treasurer or Chief Accounting Officer, or a CFA, or a candidate possessing another advanced degree or diploma in a quantitative field. 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.
