Application Process

Application

Complete and submit an online application and pay a $50 non-refundable application fee.

  • Resume: You will be required to upload a professional resume.
  • Personal Statement: You will be required to upload a personal statement addressing why you are applying to the MBA program at this point in your career, what your short and long-term career goals are and why the LMU MBA is a good fit for your professional development needs.

GMAT/GRE Test Scores

You are required to provide official test scores for either the GMAT or GRE unless you qualify for a waiver. Applicants who are required to submit GMAT/GRE scores should use the following school codes:

  • GMAT: MSN-XN-25
  • GRE: 4403

GMAT scores of 550 or higher are generally considered competitive for admission to the MBA program. You may use the GRE Comparison Tool to convert GRE scores to a GMAT equivalent. Competitive test scores do not guarantee admission to our program.

College/University Transcripts

Provide transcripts for all colleges or universities you have attended. You may upload unofficial transcripts directly into your online application. You should request an official electronic transcript from any institution where you earned a degree. Request that official transcripts be sent via email to graduateadmission@lmu.edu.

If your university is unable to send an official transcript electronically, please have a physical transcript sent to:
