From Director of Texas Executive MBA Admissions, Sharon Barrett:
Hands down, this is the most common question I get from Executive MBA candidates:
“How does the test waiver work and do I qualify?”
So here’s the lowdown– First and foremost, the Executive MBA is the only Texas MBA program that accepts applicants’ petitions to waive the GMAT or GRE exam requirement. (Key words being “applicant” and “petition.”) And everyone’s case is different, so there’s no recipe to follow, no checklist, and no guarantee that if you do certain things, you’ll get a waiver.
The MBA Admissions committee views each applicants’ petition in the context of their entire application, and renders a decision on the application versus a separate decision on just the waiver.
Here are the areas of consideration when reviewing an application with a petition for a test waiver:
From Texas MBA Working Professional & Executive Program Admissions:
There’s an ice-breaker game often played at events called “Two Truths and a Lie,” where you make three statements about yourself, and others try to guess which statement is false. We’ll modify that slightly here and call it “Two Truths and a Myth.”
See if you can spot the myth about applying to a Texas MBA Working Professional or Executive (WPE) Program:
- The Texas MBA is seeking the most qualified candidates for its WPE programs in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and Austin.
- We consider a candidate’s academic performance, work experience and overall motivation in reviewing an application.
- Candidates must apply early in the process to have a chance at being considered.
