MMS: Duke Kunshan Program Admissions Criteria In order to apply for the MMS: Duke Kunshan program, at a minimum, you must have earned or expect to earn a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university by the time the program starts. Students from any academic background can apply. A typical MMS student has less than 2 years’ work experience. If you already have an MBA or equivalent, you are not eligible for the MMS: Duke Kunshan program. If you have more than 2 years of full-time, post-graduate work experience, please contact the admissions office to talk about how your unique situation fits our admissions criteria. All applications are evaluated holistically based on multiple criteria. Outlined below are the ways in which we evaluate the components of applications to determine if students fit our selection criteria. Academic Aptitude & Quantitative Proficiency The MMS: Duke Kunshan academic environment is rigorous, fast-paced and requires strong quantitative and analytical skills. We utilize standardized test scores, transcripts and any applicable work experience to ensure that our admitted students will be successful in the program. The Admissions Committee pays particular attention to the quantitative segment of your test score to ensure that you can handle the rigor of the program. There are no prerequisite courses for the program, but if you do not have a strong quantitative background, we recommend that you take courses such as statistics, calculus or finance. This will provide another measure of your quantitative ability. Professional Experience & Career Potential Our admissions criteria does not indicate a required minimum work experience; however, you should have no more than two years of full-time, post-graduate work experience. We evaluate paid and unpaid work engagements — including volunteer positions, part-time work, student clubs and activities, and internships — to provide insight into your initiative, experience working in a team environment, and other skills that would translate well into potential career paths after the MMS: Duke Kunshan program. Reflect on your experiences and ensure that they are well-represented in your application. How have they helped you mature and develop leadership and teamwork skills? How will they enable you to be an active contributor to the learning environment? How will you leverage your experiences to achieve your career goals? English Proficiency Applicants for whom English is a second language are encouraged to submit a score from an English proficiency test (TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE), but these scores are not required to complete your application.
