LUMS MBA Admissions Criteria and Requirements

Posted by on October 8, 2014 in LUMS MBA | 684 comments


The Higher Education Commission in Pakistan has ranked the LUMS MBA program as the best in the nation. LUMS MBA comes under Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) and is a rigorous two year full time program that cannot be as part time or with a job etc. Over the past decade LUMS has produced the best and the brightest business and corporate leaders – one of the reasons is their non-traditional teaching technique, namely the case method. These cases are based on real world practical problems and encourage class participation.

In my experience LUMS wants applicants who have a variety of skills, accomplishments and aspirations. This year (in 2014) LUMS admitted 86 students from thousands of applications all across Pakistan. This gives an idea of the level of competition for the LUMS MBA program. Here is the admissions criteria and mandatory requirements that one must fulfill while applying to the MBA program at LUMS.

LUMS MBA Admissions Criteria

A 4-year undergraduate degree or its equivalent
A 4 year degree program at an accredited Pakistani or foreign university is mandatory for LUMS MBA admissions. Applicants who have a bachelor’s degree of less than four years will have to submit equivalence certificate from the HEC.

GMAT Test Results

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a prerequisite for admission to LUMS MBA program. Previously LUMS used to conduct the LMAT exam which is no longer valid – every LUMS MBA applicant must take the GMAT exam in order to qualify for admissions to LUMS.

Work Experience

Although LUMS clearly states on its website that work experience is not mandatory for admissions to LUMS, however in my observation, it does prefer students with some full time work experience. In fact the LUMS MBA program is designed for students having some work experience, therefore one must seek some work before applying.

Two recommendation letters

In order to apply for the MBA program at LUMS, you will need to submit two reference letters from professional who have worked with you. Ideally one recommendation should come from a current or recent employer and another from a professor who knows your work.


After you submit the online application along with all the documents to LUMS MBA program, you will then be shortlisted for an interview. The interview is mandatory and part of the admissions process – it is a positive indicator but not a guarantee of admission to the LUMS MBA program. Interviews are scheduled on the LUMS campus always and there is no fixed format or timing for it. Interviews can last from 10 minutes to 30 minutes and are conducted by a group of professors and MBA Admissions Board member who have reviewed your application.

    Hey I think its great your still replying to people even though this post is pretty old. I’ve just finished my Bachelors in computer science and I’ve been doing a bit of research.

    I have 6 months of experience working in a professional environment. And probably around 2 years if you count the free lance work I’ve done. Though I plan to bring it up to 1 year of experience. I need to know a few things.

    1) My cgpa is 2.6. What are my chances of getting in?
    2) I’m starting prep for GMAT right now, what will be an ideal score for Lums to even consider taking me.
    3) Admissions for Lums start in september 2015 . I think. Am I right about that? Can you give me some sort of timeline? When do I apply? If I work for 6 months till around March 2016 can I apply then or will it not matter in the general scheme of things?
    4) When should I start applying?

    • Avatar


      1) GPA is one factor but you can make up for it with a good GMAT score of 650+
      2) 600+ for LUMS
      3) In Jan/Feb 2016 the LUMS admissions are due
      4) Jan/Feb 2016

    Hello brother, I am a CA PAK final student and doing articles from one of the big four accounting firms (E&Y). I worked on 3 big clients so far (2 years) in Audit and Advisory departments. I know nothing about LUMS MBA and its test except that its some serious shit. I am planning on to do MBA but have lot of questions, like: 1. Do you think MBA is better than CA? I mean in terms of monetary rewards/remuneration packages that they grab. 2. I have also heard about IBA’s MBA..which one is better option? 3. This training that I am doing is called Articleship/sort of internship in CA…do you think it fulfills the criteria of work experience that LUMS demands or intead they ask for experience after completing a particular degree, which would be CA in my case? 4. And I have heard very much about LUMS fee structure. Do they have merit-based scholarships? If they do what kind of merit one should expect? 5. In your experience do you think my resume will attract the panel’s attention? And that should I join GMAT preparation academy or ,as I am pretty good in Accounts and Auditing, just give the bloody test??? My educational background is something like this: Matriculation=93%, F.Sc=80% and now CA Finalist/CFAP level. waiting for your reply. Thanks

      LUMS MBA is the best if you want to stay in PK. MBA is one of the best degrees in terms of long term monetary outlook. As long as your work experience is after the 3 year acca degree it will help. They only give loans that you have to pay back in conjunction with MCB. GMAT and 2-3 years of work experience is just that attracts them. Without prep GMAT is impossible to give so prepare for 2-3 months.

      Well there is no good place for GMAT prep in Hyderabad 🙁 To self prep you can get hold of the 8 Manhattan GMAT guides and some actual GMAT questions for practice from somewhere. These would suffice. If you have any queries let me know. If you can’t find the books, please call my office and ask them to arrange them for you.

    Hello, I want to know what are the odds of getting admission in EMBA executive for students? What percentage in is required? In case of equivalnce certificate is required, in what way? HEC will give an equivalent certificate of 2 years degree then I will get admitted in EMBA? How many years will I complete it in then? Does the academic backround really matters? If yes, then what percentage in matric and inter is required?

      For EMBA you should have 6+ years of work experience – nothing else matters

    Aoa.. ur reply really do help a lot. I want to discuss my scenario with you.
    I am CA finalist with 4 years of articleship from firm. Prior to that I did BBA from FAST university with cgpa 2.71. In 2010. As far as now, I am stuck in my final exams and really want to complete my education with masters. As I will be considered only bachelors till I get the certification of completion from icap of CA. So now I want to joins lums for MBA not EMBA as I don’t like it. I prefer doing full time MBA with majors in my field plus it will give boost to my current professional status. Or if not then MBA from lums standalone will be sufficient.
    What do U say? Plus I am not very sharp student I am just above average. My English analytical or quantitative all are above average not excellent.
    So what should I go for GMAT or gre ? Plus when I see their past exams I lose confidence k I would not be able to do this or pass through this.
    I can now join in next year only. And pls suggest how should I prepare . Please give me a guideline which I follow

    Wait for your reply

    • Avatar

      WS – MBA is better than EMBA from LUMS and definitely your profile is a good fit for the LUMS MBA program. GRE is better if you have average analytical skills. For GRE prep, consult the Manhattan GRE guides and the ETS official guides

    Hello, I wanted to ask if I can get admission in LUMS MBA program after completing my CA certification. Since CA is just a certificate and not a degree, I’ll be 12th pass unless I give papers with it. I will also only have graduation degree of i.e. of 2 years. So I’ll be a 2 years undergraduate but a CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT also. I want to ask if I can apply for LUMS with this academic background. Although CA is equal to M.COM as per by HEC.

      LUMS requires 16 years of education for their MBA program.

    Hopefully you are doing good!

    I am a Chemical Engineer with 3 years of work experience. I want to apply for full time MBA program in LUMS.
    I made account on GMAC for GMAT test. Deadline to take GMAT for Round 2 is 5 April 2018. I want to ask that how close i can get test appointment before GMAT test date?

    Means can i register for test before a week or 10 days?

    • Avatar

      W.A.S Anfal, Yes you can register any day before the test day. To be on safe side register for GMAT at least 5 days before you plan to take the exam.

    Hi Talha!! Which streams of MBA are good at LUMS between supply chain, maketing and why do you believe that particular stream is good?

    Assalam O Alaikum. Talha Sb, I just got into Lums MBA programme. I am also accepted at IBA Karachi, and a couple of Universities at Germany (Mannheim & Cologne). I am finding it really hard to finalize a university. My long term goals are to live in Pakistan, but in the next 5-8 yrs I am open to relocate anywhere around the globe for experience. But, people who I have consulted say that if your aim is to stay in Pakistan, the best choice is Lums. I did my bachelors from IBA. What would you suggest in such a scenario. Hope you do answer my query. May Allah bless you.

    • Avatar

      W.A.S Taqi, I agree with the fact that if you want to stay in Pakistan then LUMS in #1. However, do note that neither LUMS nor IBA will help you go abroad or relocate elsewhere. That is only possible with an int’l MBA. I will advice LUMS given that eventually you want to be in PK. Going to Germany etc will not help you settle well in Pakistan in the longer run!
