Graduates of SFU's GDBA program with a CGPA of 3.5 or higher are also not required to take the exam.
- If you are required to take the GMAT exam, we require a minimum GMAT score of 550. We also accept the GRE exam (minimum score of 155 in each section). Competitive recommendations - GMAT: 600+ or GRE 310+ on the combined verbal and quantitative section.
- If you are submitting a GMAT score, please instruct GMAT to send the original score report directly to the PT MBA Office, code 6G8-N3-20. It takes up to 20 business days for official scores to arrive at SFU. To ensure there is no delay in the application process, please forward your unofficial GMAT scores to email@example.com or fax 778.782.5153.
- The GMAT may be taken as often as desired, and SFU will only consider the highest score. The GMAT score is valid for five years from the exam date.
