Graduate Tests

The Stanford MSx Program is an academically rigorous program that will immerse you in challenging coursework, engaging discussion with faculty and classmates, and engrossing team projects.

We need to ensure that you are mentally and intellectually ready for this challenge. We do so by requiring graduate admission and English proficiency test scores.


We require either GMAT or GRE test scores, as they give us a sense of whether you possess the intellectual aptitude required for this program.

English Proficiency Tests

All courses for the Stanford MSx Program are taught in English; therefore, you must demonstrate English proficiency. You must take an English proficiency test if:

  • English was not the primary language of instruction at your undergraduate or graduate institution.
  • Your college or university taught some classes in a language other than English, even if your specific program was taught in English.

Your citizenship and/or work experience are not testing exemptions. Learn more about our English proficiency testing requirements and how to report your scores.
