GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) or GRE (Graduate Record Examinations General Test) is mandatory for admission to the MWM programme. It must be taken within the last five years at the time of submitting your application.

Students who did not attempt their undergraduate studies in English are required to attempt the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). It must be taken within the last two years at the time of submitting your application.

For all the abovementioned tests, you may first email the unofficial score to the Admissions Team while requesting for the test centre to send the official score to SMU.

Official Score Reports can be sent via the following Institution Codes:

GMAT: F8D-7V-34
GRE: 2861 (Department Code: 4102)

Two referee reports are required for admission to the MWM programme, and can be submitted online via the Application Portal.

Alternatively, your referees may submit their recommendations via the PDF version (download here), or via recommendation letters delivered to SMU by harcopy or email.

Of the two personal references, one should typically be from a current or previous employer, a colleague, or someone else who knows you well at work; the other referee could be someone who taught you at university or college or another person who knows you in a professional capacity.



Applications received without the application fees will not be processed. Payment for the application fee can be made via credit card (VISA or MasterCard) when submitting your application.
