Program Requirements

The admission committee will evaluate your candidacy based on test scores and undergraduate GPA, with some consideration given for work experience. Particular attention is paid to grades achieved in quantitative-based coursework. Work experience is preferred and will enhance the composite admission score, but is not mandatory. GMAT is required, and the score must demonstrate a high-level of quantitative and analytical ability. The average TOEFL score usually exceeds 90.


Please contact Drexel LeBow’s Graduate Admissions Office directly with any questions concerning required entrance exams (such as the GMAT), evaluation of undergraduate or graduate records (grades, scores, total years and subjects studied, etc.), and any other issues regarding application to the M.S. in Business Analytics program.
