Selection of Applicants

The ranking and selection of master students is based on GMAT and/or GRE test results.

We have no minimum requirement regarding test result, but will admit those with the highest merit value until the program is full.

GMAT/GRE is a computer adaptive test delivered in English and administered in test centers around the world. It measures verbal, mathematical, analytical and writing skills. The exam helps graduate programmes assess applicants´suitability for advanced studies. For more information and for registration please visit for GMAT or for GRE.

Due to the pandemic, for 2020/2021 SBS will also accept test results from GMAT and GRE taken online.

The Master´s programme in Management, Organisation and Society, previously had an emphasis on the test section "Analytical Writing". Each applicant was given a merit value based on GMAT total score (20%) and Analytical Writing score (80%). The merit value was called GMATA. For 2021 we will only consider total score, due to the online versions of GMAT/GRE.

More information about how to submit your GMAT or GRE result

Ther are two important steps to remember when submitting your test score. You should download a copy of your result on and you should also make sure that your test center submit your verified score report directly to us (Stockholm Business School). This is required to make your verified result visible to the Stockholm Business School data-base. If you apply for more than one of the programmes you only need to submit your test result to one programme.

The GMAT or GRE result must not be older than 5 years on the last date for application. We  only look at GMAT total score. GRE results are converted into GMAT scores.
