How to Apply

MSU responds to novel coronavirus pandemic


We recognize that the global COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for some applicants to take the GRE or GMAT. Thus, we are making the GRE/GMAT requirement optional for Fall 2021 master's admissions.

If you are not submitting a GRE or GMAT score as part of your application materials, please submit an academic statement that includes a discussion of both your past experiences (work or academic) involving data analysis and the strength of your quantitative analytical skills.

For questions, please contact Melanie Zaremba at
