Evaluation Criteria

The MBA program is the breeding ground for the leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow. We aim to develop students to excel in the constantly and rapidly changing business world.

The MBA Admissions team looks to attract and admit candidates with balanced competencies including excellent analytical skills and leadership potential. A composite score is calculated for every applicant and is used as the basis for the admission committee decision. The following requirements constitute the criteria needed to consider your application: from applicants interested in joining the program:


University Degree


Work Experience

An undergraduate degree is needed for admission into the MBA program. Students should have a GPA of at least 75 or an AUB equivalent score.

The GMAT score we look at is a balance of both the quantitative and verbal score. Students can join as “special not working for a degree” until satisfactory score on GMAT is attained. 

Work Experience will enable applicants to benefit fully from the MBA experience. Applicants that have previous work experience will count in their composite score of admission.


Note: All students who don't have an undergraduate degree from AUB, or any American, Canadian, British or Australian University, must meet the English Language Proficiency Requirement (ELPR) of the University.

Although we have a set deadline for each semester, applications will be reviewed on a rolling admissions process. This means that the final decision could be received earlier than the dates displayed below.
