Admission Consideration

Admissions decisions are based on a holistic review of the candidate’s application. Strong candidates to the Executive MBA Program will have a balance of solid academic background and a minimum five years of managerial experience. Learn more about the EMBA student profile here.

The EMBA admissions interview is an important part of the selection process. Not only does it factor heavily on admissions decisions, it also allows the candidates to ask any questions they may have about the program. In addition, information gathered during the interview helps the program administration identify team assignments in the newly formed cohort.

Candidates are expected to show excellent quantitative, writing and interpersonal skills. Graduate admission tests (GMAT/GRE) may be requested when other qualities of the candidate are not up to par with the rest of the pool. We also may require online modules of candidates in quantitative areas (accounting, finance or statistics) prior to admission.
