COVID-19 MBA Admissions Updates

Program admissions status

Last updated: May 26, 2020

Full-Time MBA Program
We have delayed the official start of the program to August 31 and have extended the Round 4 deadline through July 13, while transitioning to rolling admissions. Applications will be reviewed and admissions decisions will be released on a rolling basis. Most applicants will receive an admissions decision within two weeks of submission. Due to the COVID-19 situation and applicants’ reduced ability to access and prepare for the GMAT or GRE at this time, new applicants can request a GMAT/GRE waiver (learn more about the waiver). To better assist you in taking this important step in your career during this unprecedented time, we’ve also waived the application fees for the remainder of the admissions cycle for the Class of 2022.

Evening MBA, Weekend Executive MBA and Online MBA Programs
There are no changes to the application deadlines or requirements for these programs at this time. More information can be found here:
