General Application Requirements

Applications for the Notre Dame Master of Science in Management (MSM) program must contain each of the following elements:

  • Academic transcripts from all previous undergraduate or graduate education (unofficial copies are accepted for admission, but are required prior to starting the program)
  • One essay with photos that respond to the following prompt: We want to know who you are beyond your resume, so we ask that you upload three photos that represent your passions and personal interests. Then, use your essay to tell us what each photo represents. We are interested in what the images say about you, not in the quality of the photos. Feel free to use stock images, symbols, landscapes, or your own pictures — you do not have to be present in the photos.
  • Two (2) recommendations
  • Resume
  • Official test score report (GMAT or GRE)
    • Try our GMAT mini quiz to get an idea of what kinds of questions you’ll face on the GMAT.
  • Official TOEFL, PTE, IELTS Academic score report (international students only).
  • After an initial screening, candidates may be invited to interview. If you plan on visiting Notre Dame, you are encouraged to schedule an interview, even if you have not yet submitted an application or received an invitation.
