Admissions

Jump to:

At EGADE Business School, we seek students who motivated by the potential for innovation within their society and business. As an online student, you will join a community of like minds that you can leverage long after graduation.

Our online MBA program offers two track options — English and Bilingual — and four start dates per year: January, April, July and October.

Two tracks. Same application requirements.

At EGADE Business School, we know ambitious students come from all backgrounds. In an effort to make our program accessible to more students, we offer two tracks: English and Bilingual. The English Track is entirely in English; the Bilingual Track features live classes and written assignments in Spanish, with asynchronous content in English.

FAQ: How do the two tracks differ?  

Regardless of the track they choose, applicants accepted into the program can expect the same curriculum and syllabus — students take the same innovative business courses and learn from the same renown EGADE Business School faculty. The only difference is that now there are two language delivery options.

Admitted students have 60 days from the start of classes to deliver the required official documents. Please notify your admissions counselor if you feel your requests for official documents may be impacted by COVID-19.

Test Waivers
If testing centers are closed in your area, contact our admissions team to request a waiver for your application. To request a test waiver or discuss questions regarding official documents, please reach out to admissions at admissions@negociosenlinea.egade.tec.mx or +52 55 5351 2587

Online application

A short online application, which asks questions about your personal history, academic background and professional experience, is required to apply.

Undergraduate transcript and Grade Point Average (GPA: final grade)

You will be required to provide an unofficial transcript from your undergraduate program, complete with courses, grades and a copy of your diploma. Depending on nationality, uploads of your Clave Única de Registro de Población (CURP) and cedula are also required. Strong candidates will have a minimum GPA or average of 80/100 (or equivalent). However, applicants with a lower minimum GPA may still be reviewed and can strengthen their application in the following ways:

  • Submitting an additional letter of recommendation
  • Submitting transcript(s) and diploma(s) for other graduate-level courses
  • Submitting any additional graduate-level test scores for the PAEP (Prueba de Admisión a Estudios de Posgrado), GMAT, GRE or Executive Assessment
  • Expressly stating any factors that contributed to GPA performance in addition to the personal statement and explaining efforts to ensure academic success at the graduate level

Students with Bachelor’s Degree outside of Mexico

Per official regulation, applicants who obtained an undergraduate/bachelor’s degree from an institution outside of Mexico must go through the revalidation process by the Secretary of Public Education in Mexico. This process can be conducted online, but requires that the applicant (or an appointed representative in Mexico with an additional cost) picks up the official revalidation letter in person. More information about the process, and the revalidation fee, can be found on the SEP’s portal under Revalidación de estudios del tipo superior

Please note that while graduate admissions test scores can help strengthen your application, they do not guarantee admission to the program.

Resume/curriculum vitae (CV)

Your resume is an important part of the application, as it provides the admissions panel with a more holistic understanding of your qualifications. You will be required to deliver your resume/CV with dates for each job you have held and school or academic institution you have attended. You may also include volunteer work, part-time jobs and extracurricular activities. You are not required to submit your CV in any particular format.

Need help with your resume? Our admissions team can help. Reach out to them at +52 55 5351 2587 or admissions@negociosenlinea.egade.tec.mx to request a resume review.

Graduate admissions test score or waiver

  • For candidates with 3 to 5 years of professional experience, a PAEP (Prueba de Admisión a Estudios de Posgrado), GMAT, GRE or Executive Assessment is required.
  • Candidates with 5 or more years of professional experience are eligible for a Graduate Admissions Test waiver.
  • Please speak to your Admissions Counselor for details.

English proficiency

To accommodate our diverse cohorts, our program has two tracks: English and Bilingual. The English Track is conducted entirely in English, and the Bilingual Track features live classes and written assignments in Spanish with asynchronous content in English. We require a demonstration of English proficiency to apply, regardless of the track you choose. To meet this requirement, you can submit:

  • A proficiency waiver: Waivers are available if you can prove English proficiency through an interview with your admissions counselor. Reach out to the admissions team at admissions@negociosenlinea.egade.tec.mx or +52 55 5351 2587 to learn more.
  • Test scores: You may submit scores from the TOEFL iBT®, IELTS or an equivalent exam (speak to your admissions counselor for a list of acceptable exams). The TOEFL iBT® is preferred if available in your area. We ask for a minimum score of 79 on the TOEFL iBT® or 5-6.5 (B2) on the IELTS.
  • Transcripts: Scores are not required if you previously demonstrated English proficiency through an exam at Tecnológico de Monterrey or an institution where English was the primary language of instruction. You must submit transcripts from these institutions to meet the requirement. Consult with an admissions counselor to verify the validity of previous exams.

Please note that receiving an English proficiency waiver does not guarantee admission to the program.

Application fee

A fee of 500 MXN is required to apply.

Two letters of recommendation

Professional recommendations are strongly preferred.

Interview

An interview will be scheduled by your admissions counselor. It will be conducted via video conference. If you choose to apply to the English Track, the interview will be conducted in English. If you choose to apply to the Bilingual Track, the interview will be conducted in Spanish. You will complete a statement of purpose as part of your interview assessment, after you have submitted the online application.

This statement must be written in English and respond to the following:

  • What is your main motivation for pursuing your MBA with EGADE Business School?
  • What will your contributions be to EGADE Business School?
  • What are your professional goals and aspirations?

It is recommended that your statement is 650 to 750 words.

Documentation checklist

In order to complete your application, you must provide the following documents:

  • Notarized copy of your undergraduate academic diploma.
  • Copy of your undergraduate academic transcripts.1
  • Copy of your professional cédula (Mexican professionals only)2
  • Original or certified copy of your birth certificate.
  • Identification card (INE or passport).
  • CURP (Mexican nationals only).

All students are required to provide EGADE Business School with physical official documents no later than 60 calendar days after the first day of class; this includes apostille or authentications (for documents of foreign origin), legalization/notarization of documents. Please note that copies submitted during the application process do not satisfy this requirement, and failure to provide official documents will make you unable to continue the program, as this is a Secretaría de Educación Pública (SEP) requirement. Upon admission, students will be notified of which official documents will need to be submitted.
