What are the minimum MBA admissions requirements?

All applicants must have the following MBA admissions requirements; a bachelor’s degree, a competitive GMAT, GRE, TAGE MAGE or TCT score, at least three years of full-time work experience, and proof of English proficiency for international applicants.

  • A bachelor’s degree: Applicants must have a Canadian bachelor’s degree, or equivalent, with a minimum admission average of B (70%). Admission grades are calculated following the Graduate Studies guidelines: assessment of the last 20 courses for foreign transcripts, or the last 60 units for Canadian and American transcripts.
  • Completed the GMAT/GRE/TAGE MAGE/TCT:
    • GMAT: Minimum overall score of 50%, with a minimum of 45% in both the verbal and quantitative categories.
    • GRE: Minimum overall score of 310 with at least 45% in the verbal category and 40% in the quantitative category.
    • TAGE MAGE: The medians you must achieve for the overall and TAGE-MAGE subtests are:
      • Final score: 257/600 points
      • Part I—Problem Solving: 23/60 
      • Part II—Verbal Skills: 26/60
      • Part III—Logical Reasoning: 27/60
    • TCT: A score of 45/90 is a passing score provided the candidate has achieved 50% or more on all three sections of the TCT. 
  • Work experience: All applicants require three years of full-time managerial or professional work experience. Part-time positions, summer jobs, and co-op placements do not count towards the three years of work experience. However, they are considered during your file evaluation.
  • English Proficiency: Candidates whose first language is not English, or French must complete one of the required English proficiency tests.
