Average MBA GMAT Scores in Canada

Average GMAT scores required by potential MBA students in Canada.

What is the average GMAT score required for a student attending an MBA School in Canada?

The average Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score required by MBA schools in Canada is 550, ranging from a low of 500 to a high of over 600. The average GMAT score attained by MBA students, however, is 606. A proportional relationship appears to exist between a school's supposed place on the hierarchy of business education and its average GMAT score. That is, schools higher up on the hierarchy tend to have higher scores. For example, students at the traditionally elite business schools of Joseph L. Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, Queen's University, and Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario have, on average, a GMAT score of 654 ranging from 642 to 661. The higher scores that the more prestigious schools average are most likely the result of their higher admissions standards. Furthermore, schools with no established minimum GMAT score for admission tend to have a student body whose average scores are higher (622) than those who have set a minimum score (600). However, except for McGill University and Queen's University, most of those schools usually viewed among the elite in Canada do not have a minimum required GMAT score; thus, because these schools have higher overall admissions' standards helps explain why, on average, those with no set minimum have a higher average GMAT score. There is no apparent correlation between age and/or work experience and a higher or lower GMAT score.
