It's difficult to land a spot at one of America's top business schools — candidates must have a high GPA and GMAT score to stand out among thousands of applicants.
While the requirements are strict, earning your MBA has many advantages. It's typical for MBA graduates to earn more than $100,000 per year. Now, as universities across the country shut down because of the novel coronavirus, earning an MBA may give you a leg up in your career, said Daniel Kahn, an analyst at the education data firm QS Quacquarelli Symonds.
"The problem-solving skills that MBA graduates learn along with the technology competence will surely help in creating strategies and solutions for the world to adapt to the new norm," Kahn told Business Insider.
This year's applications are a bit different. Starting in March, schools began going virtual because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. This led to several new guidelines to help prospective students cope with changes. For example, the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business began accepting online GMAT/GRE scores. Application deadlines for many of these programs were extended until June 1.
"The virus emphasizes the importance of sustainable and responsible management and flexible learning," Kahn said.
QS Quacquarelli Symonds used original analysis and data from U.S. News & World Report to compile a list of requirements for America's top business schools. The data is pulled from QS's 2020 Global Ranking, and some of the numbers in the chart skip to show where the US schools fall on the overall global ranking. MBA programs with an equal sign listed alongside the school mean that there was a tie.
If you're looking to get an MBA, here are the GPA and GMAT scores you need to get into America's top business schools, according to analysts at QS Quacquarelli Symonds and data from U.S. News & World Report.
