More practically, MBA requirements typically require completed undergraduate education to enroll in a top-tier program. Most business schools accept students from all areas of undergraduate study, from liberal arts and social sciences to engineering and education.
Your undergraduate program helps you become a better communicator and sharpens your analytical and problem solving skills. Those skills will continue to develop throughout your MBA program, but a special concentration on management and real-world practices will help you focus on your success in business, public, or not-for-profit sectors.
Do I need to take my GMAT or GRE?
The GMAT is the most common test used for entry into MBA programs. However, Willamette University MBA – like many MBA programs – now allow students to choose between the GMAT and GRE.
Neither the GMAT nor GRE are designed to measure any business- or economics-specific knowledge or job skills, but rather general verbal, mathematical and analytical skills.
