Dear Requirements for MBA:

But where do you want to do your MBA? Your question is rather incomplete; thus we are forced to make an assumption to address it. Since you have mentioned TOEFL (Test of English as Foreign Language), we are assuming that you are looking the admission criteria for MBA in the US.

Admission requirements for MBA in the US vary across schools. The typical requirements include:

  • A 4-year Bachelor's degree. If the Bachelor's degree is of 3-year duration, completion of Master's degree is required.
  • GMAT (Graduate Management Aptitude Test), a standardized entrance exam
  • 3-5 years of work experience: Although often not stated as a requirement, it is implicit for the top-tier MBA schools. Schools beyond the top-tier do accept student with less or no experience
  • Letter of recommendations
  • Personal essays

One note. Virtually no financial aid is available to international students for MBA in the US. Also, to improve your chances of securing admission, you may wish to read: How do I get into a top MBA program?
