Standardized tests such as the GMAT only take into consideration a fraction of the competency of an aspiring executive MBA student. As of 2013, Oregon Executive MBA no longer requires the GMAT or GRE test as admissions criteria. Instead, we assess each candidate’s application, essay responses, resume, recommendation letters, and conduct a formal interview to ensure that our classroom is filled with dynamic, motivated students who excel both on paper and in person.
We also recognize that quantitative proficiency is essential to succeed in our program and to accelerate your career. To replace the GMAT, the last step for full admission is to complete the self-paced tutorial MBA Math with an 80 percent passing grade to refresh and improve skills in finance, accounting, economics, excel, and statistics. OEMBA will provide applicants with a personal link to a unique set of modules on Finance, Accounting, Economics, Excel and Statistics prior to the start of the program. Upon successful completion of MBA Math, applicants will be notified in writing of their final admission status.
