Top MBA Programs - Minimum/Average TOEFL Scores

Although International MBA aspirants compare their GMAT scores with the class average of their target school, they often don’t pay close attention to the TOEFL score. For Business Schools, TOEFL test is a guarantee that you have the ability to communicate effectively with your peers and professors. We have picked top Global MBA programs and have included the TOEFL Score for each school.

PBT: 310-677
CBT: 0-300
iBT: 0-120

Other two popular alternatives to TOEFL are IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and PTE (Pearson Test of English). Most Business Schools accept any one of the tests. Contact the Business School representative before picking the test.
