Performance on the GMAT or GRE is a good indicator of success in the program. While we do not have a minimum score for either test, we look for strong quantitative ability as evidenced in the mathematical portion of the GMAT or GRE. Most of our students score in the 70th percentile or above on their total score, a good measure of the strength of your peers.
There is no work experience required.
Transfer credits are not permitted to the Ph.D. program.
