Admissions Process

The admissions process at Babson’s graduate school follows a deadline-driven timetable which means applications are reviewed—and decisions rendered—depending on the date the application was submitted. Late in the application cycle, when rolling admissions begins, the committee will review applications as they are submitted. It is always advantageous for you to submit your application as early as possible. Once all application requirements noted below are received, the application will be ready for review.

We require the TOEFL or IELTS from all applicants whose native language is not English.

We reserve the right to request a TOEFL or IELTS from all international applicants. To request a waiver please email gradadmissions@babson.edu​ for additional instructions.

As an international applicant, you will need to submit the following with your application:

  • TOEFL iBT or IELTS test scores
  • Official English translations of all required academic documents

International Student Disclaimer:
Babson’s Blended Learning MBA and Master of Science in Business Analytics are part-time degree programs. Because of the part-time status of these programs, Babson cannot issue a Form I-20/Form DS-2019 (certificate of eligibility for an F-1/J-1 student visa). Interested international students must therefore possess a visa which permits part-time study (examples include: H-1B, H-4, F-2, J-2, L-2) to enroll in the program. Studying in a full-time or part-time degree program is not permitted on a B-1/B-2 visitor visa or the visa waiver program.  If you have any questions, please email Babson’s International Student & Scholars Services at isss@babson.edu.
