A Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) score is preferred. The test should be taken within five years of the term for which you are applying. Please direct the testing service to forward your test results to the University of Wisconsin–Madison (institution code: 79K-2S-72).
A Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score will also be accepted. Please direct the testing service to forward your test results to the University of Wisconsin–Madison (institution Code: 1846).
You may request a GMAT/GRE waiver with your Wisconsin Professional MBA application if you meet one of the the following criteria:
You have a terminal degree: JD, MD, PhD, or equivalent credentials from an accredited U.S. institution
You have five-plus years of professional work experience + an undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher
Complete waiver application
You are active U.S. military or a U.S. veteran + have an undergraduate degree with cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher, grades of B or higher in economics and statistics/math
Complete military waiver application
For admission to the program, your academic ability will be evaluated on your undergraduate transcripts. Graduate transcripts will be taken into consideration, as well as any other transcript you submit that has a course for grade. However, if you do submit a GMAT or GRE at admission, that test score will be used when reviewing your candidacy. Candidates admitted with the GMAT/GRE waiver are not eligible for merit-based aid.
For non-native English speakers, a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of at least 600 (paper-based test) or 106 (computer-based test) is required. International applicants with undergraduate degrees from U.S. universities may contact a Professional MBA Program admissions representative to request a waiver of the TOEFL.
The test must be taken within five years of your intended start term. Please direct the testing service to forward your test results to the University of Wisconsin–Madison (institution code: 79K-2S-72).
