Babson Graduate Application Process and Materials

New Test-Optional Policy for 2021

Due to constraints brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the admissions committee has moved to a test-optional policy. GMAT/GRE test scores will be waived for all full-time graduate applicants with a 2021 program entry. We will continue to use a holistic review process that evaluates your quantitative readiness, past academic performance, written and verbal communication through essays and interview, and career potential and/or progress through your resume and references.

You are welcome to submit a test score to strengthen your application and we’ll be happy to consider this score as part of your application review. Please note that quantitative and academic readiness is a large component of any graduate business program, and applicants who have minimal quantitative experience as expressed on their transcripts or work experience may want to submit a test score to help showcase their quantitative aptitude.
