Admissions Essay

Tell us about an idea or a project that you are interested in exploring while at PGS, how you would contribute to our learning community, and how you plan to balance school, work, and personal commitments while enrolled in the program (1,500 word maximum).

Quantitative Assessment

Applicants have three options for completing the quantitative assessment:

1. Submit GMAT results taken within the last five years to Presidio Graduate School (Code: Presidio Graduate School.)
2. Submit GRE results taken within the last five years to Presidio Graduate School (Code: 7838.); or
3. Submit a one-page history and assessment describing your quantitative skills, including:

All college-level quantitative courses taken; e.g. math, statistics, economics, finance, accounting or operations, and the resulting grades. Include quantitative and analytical skills used in your professional life and any plans you have for refreshing your math/quantitative skills prior to enrolling in a PGS degree program.

Please note: PGS does not have minimum score requirements for the GMAT or GRE. Your scores will be used as a diagnostic tool to help determine readiness for the program. The Admissions Committee may request the completion of quantitative courses such as Intermediate Algebra and/or Statistics prior to matriculation. 

Two Letters of Recommendation

PGS welcomes professional, academic, and personal letters that provide a well-rounded perspective of the applicant. At least one of the two letters should be a professional reference, ideally written by a supervisor. Applicants should ask references to briefly describe in what capacity they know the candidate and to address the strengths and challenges in as many of the following areas as possible:

  • Values and ethics demonstrated in his/her professional and/or personal life
  • Ability to work in teams, lead initiatives and manage projects
  • Communication skills
  • Business software and IT skills
  • Ability and willingness to succeed in graduate-level coursework

Letters can be sent via email or mailed and should be printed on organizational or personal letterhead and be no more than one page in length.

One Official, Sealed Transcript

Please submit one official transcript via mail or electronic download sent directly from the college/university verifying you have completed an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution. Transcripts must also include GPA.

Additional official or unofficial transcripts and certification documentations can be submitted to support your application, especially with regard to quantitative skills.

If a bachelor's degree was conferred from an institution outside of the United States, official transcripts must be sent directly from the institution(s) to Presidio. The applicant must have the transcript(s) evaluated by a foreign education credential evaluation service agency. Additionally, if the transcripts are not in English, an official translation must be submitted. The evaluation must contain the following:

  • Degree equivalency to a 4-year bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. university
  • U.S. semester credit and grade equivalent for each course
  • U.S. grade point average
