Letters of Recommendation
The MRED program requires three recommendations as part of the application process. Online recommendations are accepted through the Graduate College. In the online application, please provide the name, company and e-mail address of the three representatives who will be providing your recommendations. This contact information will be used to receive an e-mail from the Graduate College requesting that they submit an electronic recommendation on your behalf. They will be asked to answer a few short-answer and ranked questions.
We suggest obtaining professional recommendations from direct/indirect supervisors, instructors and others in positions to evaluate your performance. They should know you personally and be familiar with your career, credentials, leadership strengths and professional aspirations, as well as your strongest personal qualities, current career focus and potential for success in a graduate program.
Step 2 - Supplemental Application Materials
Once collected, all application materials should be forwarded -- unopened in their original envelopes – in a single mailing packet to the Graduate College.
It is critical that you write your Document Reference Number on all materials prior to mailing. This number can be obtained from the Graduate College Application Checklist, which is the last page of the online application. If you have already submitted documents prior to receiving your Document Reference Number, materials may be matched manually.
The following items must be submitted directly to the Graduate College as part of your application:
Step 3 - Standardized Test Scores
GMAT, LSAT or GRE - Include a copy of either test score in your supplemental application materials mailing. For GRE, ASU code is 4007. A department code is not specified. If you choose to retake the GMAT, the MRED program will only consider the highest score and does not average scores.
Exceptions to the GMAT/GRE/LSAT test requirement:
If you meet one of the above exceptions, you should submit a petition to the Admissions Committee review, stating in 100 words or less your request for a test waiver. Be sure to include your petition with your other admissions materials.
