Business Experience Required to Qualify for the GMAT Waiver. 

Those who meet the educational and work experience requirements for the 12-Month Full-Time MBA program, and apply for this program, are eligible for the GMAT waiver. Prospective students are not guaranteed admission into the Pepperdine University Graziadio School.

Work Experience Required

To be eligible for an exemption from our 12-Month Full-Time MBA GMAT requirement, candidates must have a minimum of three years full-time professional work experience post undergraduate degree in a management-level position. To meet this condition, the work experience must substantiate a high level of quantitative and analytical skills.

Academic Experience Required

In addition to the work experience requirement, you must have an undergraduate degree in business from an accredited university and a 3.0 GPA.

Please note that GMAT waivers are only applicable to those applying to the accelerated 12-Month MBA program. Those applying to other Full-Time MBA programs at the Graziadio School are not eligible for the waiver, regardless of work and educational background. 

If You Don't Qualify for the GMAT Waiver

If you are not granted a waiver, we encourage you to look into other full-time business programs that do not require the GMAT. Contact us for more information.
