Application Resources

Over the past few weeks we’ve shared a number of application-related posts for executive format applicants here on the blog. Here are a few resources you may find helpful as you assemble your materials and be sure to check back in the coming week for even more advice:


Upcoming Webinars

We are excited to continue to offer an Executive MBA application fee waiver opportunity for our 2020-2021 application period. 

It’s as easy as 1-2:

  1. Attend an Executive MBA Conversation OR Executive MBA Virtual Coffee Chat AND
  2. Attend an Executive MBA Webinar (or similar Executive MBA-related online event)

Completing these two steps will qualify you for an Executive MBA application fee waiver (a $250 value). If you’ve started an Executive MBA application, this fee waiver will automatically be applied to your application. If you haven’t started an Executive MBA application, the fee waiver code will be applied to your application once you do so. It’s just that easy! 

We have a number of upcoming webinars, and we hope you will join us online for one (or more!) of these events. Be sure to keep an eye on our Events page — we are continually adding new sessions!

Our Admissions team really enjoys getting to know prospective students, and we hope to see you online!
