Hi,

Since each institution generally sets its own language requirements, there is considerable variation across schools regarding the definition of an English speaking university. Thus, it is probably best to contact the school and ask what type of proof it requires.

Emory

"TOEFL waiver requirements
The Admissions Committee will consider waiving the TOEFL upon written request for international students who have completed full university degree programs where all instruction was in English and when the instruction was conducted in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, or Singapore."

Illinois

"An applicant may qualify for a TOEFL waiver if they have completed a degree from an Institution in a country where English is the official language. The degree must have been completed within the last 5 years."

Texas

"The TOEFL is not required for U.S. citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents, and in the following circumstances for non-U.S. residents:

If the applicant’s native language is English. (English must be the only official language of the country of which the applicant is a citizen).

If the applicant has a Bachelor's degree from an accredited university from a country in which English is the only official language as well as the language of instruction.

If the applicant scores 35 or higher in the verbal section of the GMAT (good for five years)

In the above situations, the TOEFL is waived automatically - you do not need to request a waiver.

If none of the above circumstances applies to your particular situation as an international applicant, then you are required to include a TOEFL score with your MBA application to be considered for admission. If you feel that you have exceptional English skills (you have studied or worked in English speaking countries), you may apply for a TOEFL waiver. To process the TOEFL waiver (unless it is an automatic case as listed above) we will need your GMAT score (with the breakdown of verbal and quantitative sections), a writing sample (an answer to one of our essay questions would be sufficient), and a written recommendation from a native English speaker who currently has or has had regular verbal interactions with you attesting to your English skills. Once we receive these items, we can consider your TOEFL wavier request."

Usually it means a schools where the language of instruction is English. However check with the schools that you are applying to to be sure.
Good luck!
