Many business schools have reimagined the admissions process by offering a perk for MBA candidates: They’ve dropped GMAT and GRE testing requirements. That’s why Fortune set out to rank the best online MBA degree programs with no testing requirements—that will still prepare students for the ever-changing world of business and set them on track to great career paths and new opportunities.
Not all MBA programs require applicants to submit a GMAT or GRE score for consideration. In fact, many universities have done away with the standardized test requirement altogether. One of the most affordable programs among Fortune’s ranking of best online MBA programs with no GMAT/GRE required—and with annual tuition less than $6,000—is the University of Southern Mississippi. The university has indefinitely waived testing requirements.
Yes, employers take online MBAs seriously, as do many universities—including Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School, which is among the schools now offering an online MBA option. What’s more, many employers may offer tuition assistance or reimbursement to employees who pursue an MBA.
