Application Criteria

The University of Miami Herbert Business School welcomes applications from individuals that have earned or are in the process of earning an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university. The Admission Committee assesses each candidate on a number of dimensions including academic performance and professional leadership experience. We seek students with the intellectual and interpersonal abilities to contribute to the classroom experience, to excel academically, and who possess the leadership potential to succeed.

Personal Statement

The personal statement is a chance for the admission committee to get to know you, your experience and goals, and what you may bring to the program. A personal statement prompt and supplemental essay prompt are provided within the application to help guide you.

Current Resume

The resume (or CV) should outline any current and previous professional and academic achievements that you would like the committee to consider.

Official Academic Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts may be uploaded within the BusinessCAS application in order to expedite the review process. However, official transcripts from all post-secondary attended are required for enrollment.

Official GMAT (or GRE) score

Many full-time graduate business programs will require a GMAT or GRE score for admission. However, this may be submitted after your application is received. The committee may also consider requests to waive the test requirement on a case-by-case basis. Doctoral Programs do not consider waivers. Programs that do not require the GMAT or GRE include all Executive MBA programs, the Professional MBA, the Master of Science in Leadership, and the Master of International Business.

Letters of Recommendation

The number of recommendations required may vary depending on the program in which you are applying. You will find this information listed within the Program Materials section of the BusinessCAS application. Recommendations are used as a gauge of your academic and professional achievements and managerial and leadership potential. 

International Applicant Criteria

The following supplemental materials may be required for international candidates. Please review the complete details of these requirements within the Program Materials section and contact your enrollment advisor if you have questions.

Academic Evaluation (if applicable)

For those with studies completed outside of the United States, it is necessary to provide an official course-by-course evaluation to confirm completion of a degree equivalent to the U.S. bachelor’s and GPA equivalency. The ICAP service by World Education Services (WES), a partner of BusinessCAS, is recommended but evaluations from other NACES member evaluation services are also accepted.

English Proficiency and Conditional Admissions

International applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit an English language proficiency score report. This requirement may be waived for individuals that have earned a degree in a country where the official language is English. Miami Herbert accepts the following exams:

TOEFL - Minimum score of 94 / TOEFL code for the University of Miami is: 5815

IELTS - Minimum score of 7.0 / IELTS code for the University of Miami is: 4861

For specialized master’s programs, candidates that have not achieved the minimum TOEFL or IELTS score and have strong academic performance may be considered for conditional admission. A minimal TOEFL score of 80 or an IELTS score of 6.5 is required to be considered for conditional admission. These students must successfully complete a 4-week Graduate Business English Certificate Course prior to matriculating in the academic program.
