Application deadlines for all full-time programs starting in August have been extended to May 1 to assist applicants affected by test center closures due to the coronavirus, or COVID-19. For applicants unable to take the TOEFL or IELTS, Katz will accept the Duolingo English Test. Scores of 125 or higher are considered competitive for admission and a minimum score of 105 is required in order to be eligible for admission consideration to Katz. We will accept unofficial copies of your test scores and academic documents to expedite the evaluation of your application. Note that your application will not be negatively affected by applying later in the admissions cycle than you had intended. If you have any questions or concerns, please email the admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students interested in submitting a competitive application should have a 3.0 GPA and at least a 600 on the GMAT exam. International applicants should have a score of at least 100 on TOEFL, 125 on the Duolingo English Test, or 7 on the IELTS to be competitive for admission. No prior work experience or prerequisite courses are required.
