A technology-centric world needs business-savvy professionals

The Foisie Business School graduate admissions team will help you find the right degree program for your career goals, guide you through the application process, and, if you are admitted, assure you are on the right track for success.

WPI generally attracts candidates with backgrounds in engineering, science, and information technology, but many of our graduate business students are also marketers, entrepreneurs, researchers, financial managers, and medical practitioners. Whatever your focus when you come in, you will leave with a keen business sense for a technology-centric world. WPI graduate business students are bright, hardworking, committed individuals from across the globe and industry spectrum.

  • For U.S. applicants - July 15 (fall) / December 15 (spring)

  • For International applicants - June 15 (fall) / November 6 (spring)

Applications may still be reviewed after the deadlines have passed. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so please make sure to reach out to an admission counselor about your application status or if you have any questions by emailing business@wpi.edu.

Required Testing Information

Any international applicant seeking to attend WPI on an F-1 student Visa must submit official TOEFL scores or IELTS scores. However, if applicants have two years of continuous full-time college study completed within the last five years, in a country whose official language is English, he or she can apply for a TOEFL/IELTS waiver by contacting an admissions counselor.

While WPI requires a minimum TOEFL score of 84, the Foisie Business School requires a minimum TOEFL score of 90 or IELTS score of 7. The Foisie Business School prefers a GMAT score of 500 or its equivalent on the GRE.  

Test Waiver Policy

Test scores are waived for WPI undergraduate alumni with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. If the qualifications are met and the test does not show as waived in the application portal, please contact the admissions office.

For all others, in order to qualify for a GMAT/GRE test waiver for our MS programs or the MBA, applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.  Applicants must also have at least two quantitative courses with a grade of 3.0 or higher. Additionally, applicants must also meet one of the following requirements –

  • An existing master’s or PhD degree with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  • A professional certification such as a CPA, CFA, CFP, Six Sigma, or similar.
  • Three or more years of work experience.

To request this test waiver, please reach out to your admission counselor detailing your credentials for the waiver as well as your application ID number so your counselor can review your application materials, specifically your resume and transcript(s).
