Admissions Adjustments

In-Person Teaching

BYU Marriott MBA and EMBA classes are being held with adjustments for the health and safety of the campus community. A majority of our MBA classes since March 2020 were held in person with social distancing and mask precautions. In-person classes support the development of judgement, learning, projects, and networking which are at the heart of an MBA. Unless medically necessary, students are expected to be in class for each session.

GMAT Waiver

The BYU Marriott MBA program is committed to admitting the very best students and future leaders–those who strive for the personal and professional transformation that comes from BYU Marriott’s rigorous MBA program. We recognize standardized testing is just one piece of information in a much broader, holistic evaluation of each candidate. Please carefully consider your entire application portfolio before making your decision to apply for a GMAT waiver. Consider whether a test score may help supplement your professional and academic achievements.

All existing information on an applicant’s records will be used to determine admissions, which includes existing GMAT and GRE scores. That means that if you have sent a GMAT or GRE score to BYU, we will use that score to evaluate your application and a waiver will not be offered.

Additional important points to consider before requesting a GMAT/GRE waiver:

  • Scholarships: Test scores are often a beneficial data point (but not required) for the Admission Committee when evaluating an admitted student for a scholarship.
  • Full Time Employment: Some employers use (or require) test scores during initial screenings, particularly in finance and consulting.
