To accommodate the pursuit of your academic and professional goals, please note the following updates for Robinson’s Flexible MBA and specialized master’s programs for the fall 2021 admissions cycle:
We will continue to waive the GMAT/GRE testing requirement for applicants for fall 2021. If you believe a test score will strengthen your application and are located in a region where in-person GMAT or GRE testing has resumed or online testing alternatives from either GMAC or ETS are available, you are encouraged to submit scores for consideration.
In addition, Robinson is being flexible with respect to TOEFL/IELTS language exam submissions. Please contact your respective graduate recruiter regarding specific requirements for each program.
Robinson remains as committed as ever to creating a diverse and inclusive learning community of accomplished and driven individuals. Our admissions standards and other criteria have not changed, and we continue to make holistic admissions decisions based on a wide range of factors.

Graduate Exams – GMAT, GRE
English Proficiency Exam - TOEFL, IELTS
In response to TOEFL and IELTS testing limitations, Robinson applicants may apply to fall 2021 programs without initially submitting a language exam. Applications that are otherwise complete will be reviewed to determine if a language assessment can be made with existing application materials, including but not limited to the admissions interview, personal statement, and verbal scores on standardized tests.
Applicants who are determined to meet Robinson language requirements will move on to receive a decision. Should the admission committee determine a standardized assessment of language skills is required, a member of the Office of Graduate Recruiting and Student Services will reach out to request the exam.
Though our campuses have reopened, prospective student events will continue to be help virtually. We encourage you to engage with our community through these options.
Check this calendar regularly for upcoming information sessions and admissions events for prospective and admitted students.
