McCombs School of Business Majors

 August 11, 2020 – 10:01 pm
Accounting My major isn’t in a quantitative/technical field- can I still apply?
Our program is open to applicants from any major. We do strongly recommend that applicants have completed coursework in Calculus, Statistics and Probability before they join the program.

Do you have a programming requirement?
We do not have a programming requirement for applicants, but we do strongly recommend that students admitted to the program without programming experience study on their own and come prepared for programming boot camp at orientation. Python is a good place to start.
Can I apply for Spring semester? When does the Spring (or Fall) application open?
The MS in Business Analytics begins in summer semester every year. We do not enroll students in the fall or spring semester. If you are graduating in December, please apply for the following summer.

I’m enrolled in a graduate program now and would like to transfer to UT for the MSBA. Can I get course credit for the work I’ve completed?

We cannot accept transfer credits. The MS in Business Analytics is an accelerated program that is completed in less than one year, so we cannot substitute coursework from other graduate programs.

Working on the Application

Letters of recommendation
We recommend two letters from academic references and one from a professional reference. If this is not possible, it is acceptable to submit two professional and one academic or any other combination. The most effective letters will describe the applicant’s quantitative skills and intellectual ability.

My college does not grade with a four-point scale. How can I determine my GPA? Do I need to submit a WES evaluation?
Transcripts are reviewed by Degree Evaluators at the GIAC office, who are experienced in reviewing international transcripts. They will assign a GPA to your file. Outside credential review (for example, by WES) is not required.

Test Score Concerns

What are the Codes for GRE/GMAT/TOEFL/IELTS?
The Educational Testing Service institution code for the GRE and TOEFL is 6882. The institutional code for the GMAT is 396-44-45. It is not necessary to use a department code. To fulfill the requirement with scores from the IELTS, have an official paper score report sent to the Graduate and International Admissions Center.

What’s your minimum acceptable test score? What test scores do I need in order to secure admission?
We do not admit/deny solely based on test scores, since we are looking for overall exceptional applications, including high grades, strong professional development, high test scores, and quantitative/technical background. Our faculty committee is concerned when GRE/GMAT scores are below the 60th percentile (verbal or quantitative), or TOEFL scores are below 100 (IELTS below 7).

I have an advanced degree/work experience. Can I waive the test score requirement?
We cannot waive the GRE/GMAT/TOEFL requirement for applicants with work experience or advanced degrees. These scores are an important part of our evaluation.

Can I submit late test scores? What if the test date is close to the deadline?
Please do not submit the application without the required test scores, as it will not be reviewed. If you must take the GRE/GMAT/TOEFL close to the application deadline, please include your preliminary score in the online application so that the committee can see it before your official score is received. Make sure to use the same email address, name, and birthdate on your official score report and your application, so that they can be matched up quickly by our electronic system.

Can I retake the GRE/GMAT/TOEFL and send updated scores?
We cannot reverse “deny” decisions, so you should submit your strongest application possible. Please do not submit the application with the intent to send updated test scores.
