International Student MBA Admission Requirements

International students must meet the following requirements in addition to the regular admission requirements

Transcript Evaluation

International applicants who have completed their postsecondary education from an institution outside the U.S. must hold a degree from a university recognized by the Ministry of Education as a degree granting institution. Transcripts from an international institution must be translated and evaluated by a U.S. transcript evaluation service (e.g. Global Services Associates, Educational Credential Evaluators, International Education Research Foundation or World Education Services). The purpose of the evaluation is to verify that your postsecondary degree is the equivalent of a U.S. Bachelor’s degree. 


Applicants whose native language is not English and have not completed a bachelor’s degree or higher at a university in the United States or other country where English is the primary language must submit a TOEFL score or IELTS score. Exceptions to this rule may be made for students from countries where English is one of several official languages, as well as at the discretion of the program director. You must score:

  • 80 or above on the Internet TOEFL (iBT only)
  • 250 or above on the Computer Adaptive TOEFL
  • 600 or above on the standardized paper TOEFL
  • The minimum IELTS score is 6.0

Have ETS send your scores to LMU, Institution Code 4403.
