For MBA and Master's Programs, this is determined through undergraduate records and standardized testing, specifically the GMAT or GRE. Learn more about Leeds MBA Program admissions or Leeds Master's Program admissions.
  • Professional Experience. While there is no set requirement for the majority of programs, the amount preferred varies by program and should be researched by the applicant. Please note that the Full-Time and Evening MBA Programs require at least two years of professional experience.

Leadership. While this can be more challenging to measure, it is an important component to every application. This metric is evaluated through a student’s personal statement, letters of recommendation, and for some programs, interviews.
