For the inaugural admissions cycle for the Part-Time MBA, we’re excited to offer an application fee waiver for Part-Time MBA applicants. Qualifying for a fee waiver and saving $250 on your Part-Time MBA application is as easy as 1-2:

  1. Participate in a Part-Time MBA conversation OR Part-Time MBA virtual coffee chat; AND
  2. Attend a Part-Time MBA webinar (or similar online event)


We offer multiple application deadlines for Part-Time MBA applicants, and the first deadline is 1 October. All deadlines are focused on the same start date in August 2022, and we will accept applications until the cohort is filled. For the current application cycle beginning next August, we are anticipating a cohort of 65 students.
