A minimum GPA of “Very Good”(GPA of 2.75 out of 4.00, or 3.75 out of 5.00) for the undergraduate degree must be obtained.

GMAT / GRE

Applicant to the MBA program must submit a recent standardized test result for the GMAT or GRE , which has been taken within the last five years. Master in Software Engineering and Master of Commercial Law programs do not require any standardized test result for the admission.

We know that scores on standardized tests do not always represent your abilities accurately, hence; there is no minimum GMAT or GRE score requirement for graduate study at PSU. However, the test score still somehow contributes in the overall evaluation process.Therefore, your test score is just one of the criteria in evaluating your candidacy; other criteria such as your undergraduate education, the recommendations, the interview performance, etc. would also matter substantially.
