  • Overview


At the KU School of Business, we combine a unique approach to learning with exceptional instruction. Our students benefit from professors who stay on the leading edge of research. We take our students out of the classroom and place them in real-world situations, allowing them to apply academic knowledge to actual business challenges. It’s an approach that transforms our students into tomorrow's leaders.



TOEFL Policy

In addition to the ACT/SAT and GPA requirements for direct admission or the coursework and GPA standards for competitive admission, an international applicant whose native language is not English must meet additional standards regarding English-language proficiency.  Such students are required to take the TOEFL iBT in the United States and achieve a minimum total score of 92 and minimum subscores of 23 on the written and speaking components (https://www.ets.org/toefl/ibt/about).  KU Testing Services (https://www.testing.ku.edu) offers the TOEFL iBT frequently.  Exempt from this requirement are students who have completed four years of college preparatory English and graduated from high school with a 2.5 GPA in one of the following places: United States of America, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, an English-speaking province of Canada, an English-speaking Caribbean country, or a US-accredited school located abroad.

International students applying to the School who have satisfied all requirements other than the TOEFL iBT minimums will be provisionally admitted. Such provisionally admitted students will have until the first day of classes of the subsequent semester to satisfy the TOEFL iBT minimums. Failing to complete this requirement will result in the student having their admission revoked to the School of Business.
