Two Letters of Recommendation

Your letters should come from current/former colleagues (e.g. supervisor, peer and/or client) with whom you have worked closely and who can assess your capabilities and leadership potential. You will include the contact information for your recommenders in your application, and they will be contacted by LMU to upload their letters directly into your application file.

College/University Transcripts

Provide transcripts for all colleges or universities you have attended. You may upload unofficial transcripts directly into your online application. You should request an official electronic transcript from any institution where you earned a degree. Request that official transcripts be sent via email to

Currently, we are unable to process paper transcripts in a timely manner due to the COVID-19 campus shutdown. If your university is unable to send an official transcript electronically, please scan and upload a copy of your transcript into your application, or scan and email it as a pdf file to

Applicants who have completed their postsecondary education from an institution outside the U.S. must have their transcript from their degree granting institution translated and evaluated by a U.S. transcript evaluation service. Please see our requirements for International Students for more information.


Upon submission of a completed application, qualified applicants will be invited to participate in an interview with a member of the admission committee. Interviews are by invitation only.

GMAT/GRE Test Scores

GMAT/GRE test scores are not required for EMBA applicants who are able to demonstrate, through past academic performance and work experience, sufficient strength in the areas of quantitative and analytical reasoning. Candidates will be advised after the personal interview and application screening if GMAT/GRE scores are required. Applicants who are required to submit GMAT/GRE scores should use the following school codes:

  • GMAT: MSN-XN-72
  • GRE: 4403

International Applicants

The majority of LMU EMBA international students are in the United States on a work visa as our program is designed for experienced working professionals. However, EMBA students qualify for the F-1 student visa.

International students have additional admission requirements.

Commitment Deposit

Admitted candidates must confirm their commitment to attend and provide a non-refundable deposit of $1,000. The deposit will be applied to your tuition.
