Application Requirements

Successful MBA students come from all educational backgrounds. Our program is designed to meet the needs of recent graduates or early-career professionals; however, applicants must have a bachelor's degree in any discipline.

A complete application consists of the following items, to be received by the noted deadlines:

Unofficial Transcripts

Applicants must submit unofficial transcripts from any degree-awarding college or university, as well as any post-secondary institution attended.


Applicants must submit a detailed current resume, indicating professional work experience—including start and end dates (month and year) for each position held. Provide accomplishments and skills acquired, including managerial experience.


Applicants must complete five short-answer questions and one essay. All short answers should be compiled into one document.

Responses to short-answer questions must be less than 150 words.

Letters of Recommendation

Applicants are required to submit at least one formal letter of recommendation but can submit up to three. The letters should provide specific examples and anecdotes that illustrate your professional and/or academic potential.

GMAT Scores

GMAT scores are waived for applicants who have a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher from any completed degree program. Please note, this is the ONLY waiver or exception offered. Upon completing your application, you can request a GMAT waiver by emailing a request along with your application ID number to rawlsgrad@ttu.edu.

GMAT scores are considered invalid if they are more than five years old. If you would like to have your work experience taken into consideration for a GMAT waiver, please consider applying to our Professional MBA program.

To request consideration of other standardized exams (such as GRE, MCAT, LSAT, PCAT) previously taken in the past five years, please send an email to rawlsgrad@ttu.edu.

We don't have a set minimum or maximum requirement for test scores. We review students holistically, taking into account test scores, essays, undergraduate GPA and transcripts, letters of recommendation, and resumes.

English Proficiency for International Students

All international applicants must provide proof of English proficiency before their applications can be considered for admission. Only your most recent measure of English proficiency is considered for admission purposes. This test is waived only for graduates of U.S. universities or universities in English proficiency-exempt countries. Applicants who have completed at least two consecutive years at a college or university in the U.S. or in an English proficiency-exempt country are also exempt from the English proficiency requirement.
