Key Admissions Criteria


To be admitted, applicants must satisfy the following eligibility requirements:

  • a minimum of five years of professional, full-time work experience;
  • a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited US college or university or, for non-US applicants, the equivalent of a US baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution in their home country;
  • demonstrated high aptitude for quantitative analysis and academic success as evidenced by undergraduate and graduate coursework as applicable.

Applicants are also required to provide two letters of recommendation. Standardized test scores are not required, except for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) when necessary. An English-language proficiency test is required for all applicants whose bachelor’s degree was not taught in English, or for applicants whose degree program was taught in English but whose degree-granting institution is located in a country where English is not the primary language. Such applicants must submit an official score result from either the TOEFL or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Information regarding the TOEFL is available here and applicants may only register for the internet-based TOEFL (iBT). Information regarding the IELTS is available here and applicants may only register for the academic version. The Admissions Committee does not favor one exam over the other.

To be considered for admission, the Admissions Committee requires that applicants who take the TOEFL achieve a minimum total score of at least 100, a minimum score of 26 on the reading and listening subsections, and a minimum score of 22 on the writing and speaking subsections. For applicants who take the IELTS, the Admissions Committee requires a minimum overall band score of at least a 7, a minimum score of 7.5 on the reading and listening subsections, and a minimum score of 7 on the writing and speaking subsections.

Candidates are encouraged to fill out this Preliminary Information Form, which will assist the Admissions Committee in advising you.

The Admissions Office will contact you shortly after we receive your form to discuss your suitability and provide prompt initial feedback. If you have further questions regarding the application process, please contact us at:
