English proficiency

To accommodate our diverse cohorts, our program is conducted entirely in English, and we require a demonstration of English proficiency to apply. 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 Phone Number: +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.

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. 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?

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.

Upcoming events

Throughout the year, EGADE MBAOnline hosts a number of events to help familiarize students with our school, program and online format. Many of these events are live information sessions hosted on the same platform where we offer classes. During these sessions, students can connect with our admissions team, faculty and their future peers before enrolling and ask any questions they might have about a variety of topics.

One of these events is a weekly information session presented by our admissions team where students can learn more about the program and application best practices. To hear more about these sessions or register for the next one, reach out to our admissions team at admissions@negociosenlinea.egade.tec.mx or Phone Number: +52 55 5351 2587.
