Webinar Round-Up: Career tips, alumni reflections and application advice
There is just one deadline remaining — 25 June — for our Executive MBA Class starting this August!
Interested in applying? Check out a few recent webinars you may find helpful as you navigate our application process and learn more about our program.
We also invite you to schedule a conversation and connect one-on-one with a member of our Admissions Committee. As previously noted, participating in a phone conversation satisfies one-half of our current Executive MBA application fee waiver offer.
Pro Tip: We evaluate applications on a rolling basis at this time of year. With this in mind, we encourage you to use our deadline as a guide, but once you’ve finalized your materials, go ahead and submit your application. This will allow our Admissions Committee to begin reviewing your application as soon as possible.
Executive MBA Application Tips
Earlier this week, Director of Admissions Brett Twitty hosted an App Tips session for candidates targeting our 10 June deadline. While this session focused on our earlier June round, much of the information shared is relevant to any of our Executive MBA deadlines. Session topics included: Our application review process, standardized test guidance, interviews, scholarships and more!
Additional Viewing: Want even more app-related insights? We also recommend our recent Application FAQs session. During this webinar, Brett answered our top ten Executive MBA applicant questions, including “Is it too late to apply?”, “Is there still scholarship money available?” and “Is a standardized test required?”.
