THE POWER OF COLLABORATION

Where ideas flourish
As an integral part of a major research university, the Fox School of Business is committed to creating, analyzing and disseminating knowledge accross several business disciplines. We believe that quality education derives from discipline-based and practice-focused research.
Alternative energy

Making A Difference

Deadlines & Requirements


 Application Deadlines

Priority Consideration: December 1

For Fellowship Consideration: January 15

Application Deadline: February 15


Admission Requirements

 We require applicants to submit scores from the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). The GMAT score is heavily preferred; however, we will also consider the GRE score. Applicants for the Statistics PhD program will be required to submit a GRE score. Foreign students must submit scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam.  If you have an undergraduate degree or a graduate degree (or are in the process of earning either degree) from a U.S. institution, then you do NOT need to submit a TOEFL score.  The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam will also be accepted, requiring a score of 7.0.

The ideal applicant should have:

  • 90th percentile or above on the GMAT
  • 90th Percentile or above on the GRE
  • 100 or above on the TOEFL-IBT for International Students

NOTE: GMAT scores are only valid for five years following the administration of the exam and TOEFL scores are only valid for two years following administration of the exam.

Over the past several years the average student accepted into our program has scored 710 on the GMAT, 1400 on the GRE, and/or has had a GPA of 3.7 in both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Applicants generally hold a master’s degree or equivalent from an accredited college or university. Students who do not hold an advanced degree in an appropriate business discipline may be required to take additional coursework.  Students must also have a working knowledge of calculus for admission into the program. Students should be comfortable with functions, calculating and understanding derivatives, and optimization. At a minimum, students should be familiar with the mathematics entailed in a good intermediate microeconomics textbook (e.g. the mathematical appendices of Varian’s “Intermediate Microeconomics”).

Tests scores and grades at or above the average do not guarantee admissionWe do not offer Conditional Admissions or evaluate candidates based on self-reported data via email. Each candidate’s ability and potential are assessed by the faculty in the area of specialization and by the Admissions Committee. Although the applicant’s academic record and test scores are important factors in the admissions process, other factors, such as the ability to conduct research as demonstrated by academic research publications and whether your indicated research interests match with those of our faculty, are also taken into consideration.

After initial review of your credentials a personal interview may be requested. Telephone interviews are acceptable and will be arranged by the appropriate department coordinator. A visit to campus is the responsibility of the applicant. To arrange for a campus visit, please send an email to your intended concentration advisor.
