COVID-19 Considerations for Full-time MBA Prospective Students

While our formal application deadline is April 16, 2020, we have extended this deadline to June 1, 2020 due to the current circumstances. We will continue to accept all test scores through July 1, 2020 for Round 3 applicants on extension. If you do not have a test score, you may put June 1, 2020 as the default test date on your application and have the official score from the actual test date sent to us electronically when available. Decision Release date is May 21, 2020 (or within 5 weeks after application submission, whichever is later). Program start dates and requirements remain the same. Please find more information on our FAQ page.

Please note that we are publishing FAQ updates in this section during the rapidly-changing pandemic period, and these COVID-19 updates supersede any conflicting information that may appear in other FAQs posted before.

By Share Success we mean our students should be collaborative and supportive of one another, fully engaged in academic explorations, and be thoughtful when they achieve success.
