MIT Sloan admissionより

Standardized tests, such as GMAT, GRE, EA, TOEFL, IELTS, are a component of the application process and play an important role in our holistic evaluation process. However, in view of challenges brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, we will allow candidates for the 2020-21 admission cycle to submit their application without the test and review their submitted material as is and without negative inferences. If admitted, candidates will not be required to take a test.

Additionally, applicants are welcome to submit other pieces of evidence, such as expired test scores (GMAT, GRE, EA, etc.); MITx MicroMasters, CORe, edX, MBAMath, or any other non-degree coursework completed; or certifications earned such as CPA, ACCA, CFA, etc; all of which may assist the Admissions Committee in its evaluation process.


We are looking for individuals who demonstrate:

-Leadership and an ability to inspire others
-A collaborative spirit and focus on community
-Intellectual curiosity and analytical strength
-Creativity to generate new solutions to existing challenges
-Growth in both professional and personal endeavors

We seek applicants with exceptional intellectual abilities and the drive and determination to put their stamp on the world. We welcome people who are independent, authentic, and fearlessly creative — true doers. We want people who can redefine solutions to conventional problems, and strive to preempt unconventional dilemmas with inventive ideas. We demand integrity and respect passion.

Columbia SIPA Update for 2021 application period: GRE/GMAT test waiverを認める発表

Update for 2021 application period: GRE/GMAT test requirements

コロナウィルスの影響をうけて、Columbia SIPA ではGMAT/GRE試験の提出を免除することができることを

■Columbia SIPAの発表
GRE or GMAT scores are required of all applicants, as we have found them to be useful indicators of academic ability.

In light of disruptions caused by COVID-19 to the administration of these tests and the ability of many applicants to prepare for them, SIPA will accept applications for admission for January 2021 and September 2021 without GRE/GMAT scores.

Applicants who do not submit GRE/GMAT scores must inform the Admissions Committee of the reason for the omission and provide other evidence not already apparent from their files of their ability to successfully complete SIPA’s program, such as coursework requiring significant quantitative capabilities taken after their undergraduate studies.

SIPA still has no minimum GPA or GRE/GMAT scores. The Admissions Committee carefully reviews every application in its entirety, including test scores, grades (particularly those in relevant coursework), letters of reference, and the applicant’s personal statement and work experience.

You can find the waiver request form on the Admissions FAQs page. Please note that this update is just for the 2021 application cycle. You can only request a waiver once you have created an application for the 2021 cycle. At this time, we expect the 2021 application to go live this August.
