Graduate Tests

The Stanford MSx (Masters in Management) Program is an academically rigorous program that will immerse you in challenging coursework, engaging discussion with faculty and classmates, and engrossing team projects.

As a graduate degree program at Stanford University, the MSx program is intellectually rigorous, so we require either GMAT, GRE, or EA test scores to give us a sense of whether you can demonstrate the academic readiness required for this one-year masters program. We do not offer any test waivers. All applicants must have a valid GMAT, GRE, or EA score. Test scores are considered valid for five years from the test date.

English Proficiency Tests

All courses for the Stanford MSx Program are taught in English; therefore, you must demonstrate English proficiency. You must take an English proficiency test if:

  • English was not the primary language of instruction at your undergraduate or graduate institution.
  • Your college or university taught some classes in a language other than English, even if your specific program was taught in English.

Multiple Test Scores

We do not average test scores. If you have taken the TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE more than once, report only the scores from one examination that you wish us to consider while reviewing your application. The scores you report must be from the same testing session.

Score Validity

TOEFL, IELTS, and PTE scores are valid for two years and must be taken before submitting your application. The scores must be valid on the deadline date of the round in which you apply.
