Testing Updates

  • We will be accepting scores from the GMAT Focus when this newly released version replaces the legacy GMAT on January 31, 2024. We will not be accepting the GMAT Focus from the intervening period of approximately 15 weeks between its release in October 2023 and its merger with the legacy GMAT at the end of January 2024.
  • We will now be accepting the International English Language Testing System (IELTS)

For those planning to apply to our integrated Carey JD/MBA program, please be aware that applications are only accepted in Round 1 and Round 2. However, if you’re considering the MBA/MA Lauder Joint Degree in International Studies, applications are accepted in all three Rounds. To all talented undergraduates and graduate students in their final year of study, keep an eye out for the Moelis Advance Access deferred admissions program application, which will open later this year. Stay tuned for updates!

While you’re in the early stages of crafting your application, we invite you to watch our recorded Wharton MBA Program Information Session or schedule time to speak with one of our current students for valuable insights. We’ll also be hosting virtual Application Tips sessions which will feature a live Q&A with an admissions committee member.
