At CJBS we understand the unprecedented situation that applicants are facing. We are therefore making the following changes to our admissions requirements for the remainder of this years’ admissions cycle:
All applicants are required to submit a GMAT or GRE score, unless they are located in Iran. If they are located in Iran and are made an offer, any offer will be conditional on the applicant submitting a valid GMAT or GRE score at a later date. For Mainland China, there are six test centres now open: Shenzhen, Shanghai, Suzhou, Ningbo, Xi’an and Guangzhou.
For all other applicants, you can access test centres (if they are open) and we are also pleased to accept both the GRE and GMAT home testing solutions.
We encourage those who meet our minimum requirements to apply for a GMAT/EA waiver. If you do not meet our minimum requirements, but would still like to apply, we encourage you to do so and you may receive an offer conditional upon EA/GMAT. Our Admissions Team will review your full application, and strong applicants will be invited to interview. If you are offered a place on the programme, this will likely include a condition to complete the EA/GMAT before our final application deadline.
Master of Finance
GMAT is not required for Master of Finance applicants.
Master of Accounting, MSt in Entrepreneurship and MSt Social Innovation
GMAT/GRE is not a pre-requisite, but you will be asked to completed one if you do not meet the minimum academic requirements.
TOEFL/IELTS – MBA
If English is not your first language, please see the conditions outlined in the English Language Policy. If you are required to take a TOEFL or IELTS but are unable to supply a score at the time of application, due to COVID-19, then you can submit your application without a score. However, any subsequent interview invitation or offer will be conditional on receiving a score later.

IELTS test centres are open in over 80 countries.
IELTS and IELTS for UKVI tests will resume in 11 cities across China (outside of Beijing) from 9 July. You are now able to book for tests as normal in these cities via the China IELTS registration site.
