How Analytical is the EWMBA Program?


The Berkeley MBA is analytically rigorous, and students have to use math skills quite extensively, especially in the core courses. When evaluating applications, we look at quantitative skills expressed in your academic record, GMAT scores, and on-the-job experience. If you didn’t take many quantitative classes in your undergraduate career or if you don’t use quantitative skills very much at work, you might consider taking a course to brush up before business school. The admissions committee will evaluate each application for quantitative ability, and we may ask you take a college-level math course contingent on your admission. Check your online application status page for your completion status of the math requirement. As for statistics, all admitted students are required to have taken an introductory statistics course within 5 years of starting the program (by August 1 of this year).
