Admission Committee

The committee will discuss deviations from a required degree grade and will not discuss deviations from a psychometric score, GMAT score or the weighted admission score.

Conditions for admission of the departments of study:

The decisions of the admissions committee are based on the relevant considerations. They are final and cannot be contested, unless new documents or data are submitted that the committee did not have at its disposal during its deliberations. The decisions of the admissions committee are valid only for the semester for which the applicant has registered. Applicants who do not begin their studies in that semester must go through the registration and admissions process again.

Transfer Credit

You may be able to transfer up to six previously earned credits into the Tel Aviv Online MBA program. To evaluate your credits, submit a transcript or syllabus for review, as Tel Aviv University will not acknowledge every university.
