MBA Application Guide

As you complete your application, you will need to send information to three of our offices. To make the process as straightforward as possible, we have described all of this information below. Please keep in mind that we can provide you with an early review of your degree plan requirements if you send a copy of your resume and unofficial transcripts to our MBA office (gradbusprograms@wtamu.edu).

Students who are not U.S. Citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents are classified as an international student for admission purposes, and must work directly with the admission counselor in the International Student Office, Ms. Giselle Alvarado to complete their file for admission review.  Ms. Alvarado can be reached at galvarado@wtamu.edu.


Information needed by the Office of Graduate Business Programs in the College of Business:

  • Professional Resume
  • Statement of Goals
    • Please discuss how completing the MBA@WT program will help you meet your career goals and describe the strengths that you will bring to the program.
    • Your statement of goals need not exceed 500 words.
  • Three letters of recommendation
    • One of these letters should be a professional colleague that relates to your work experience. You can download our Recommendation Letter Form. We typically do not accept letters of recommendation from an applicant's family members.

You can submit all of these materials directly to the College of Business as email attachments to gradbusprograms@wtamu.edu

Do you need to take the GMAT exam?

  • Applicants with an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher may request to have this requirement waived by completing a GMAT Score Waiver Request Form and emailing it to gradbusprograms@wtamu.edu. Alternately, you may submit an Electronic GMAT Score Waiver Request Form.
  • Applicants with an undergraduate GPA of 2.5 or higher but less than 3.0 will need to submit a GMAT score comparable to that of students who are currently successful in the program. Students who are in this category may request consideration of work experience (e.g., ten years or more with steady career progression).
