  • 1. Apply for the Online MBA program—online.

    Get the process started by applying online. You can pay the $50 application fee using your credit card or bank account.

    Tip: The earlier you apply and submit a completed application, the faster you’ll receive an admission decision. If you’re admitted to the program, you can register for classes early, increasing your chances of getting the classes you want.

  • 2. Schedule to take the GMAT

    Don’t procrastinate. Apply to take your GMAT exam ASAP. You also may want to see if you qualify for a GMAT Waiver GMAT Waiver .

    Tip: You can only take the GMAT test once every 30 days, so make sure you leave yourself time to take the test again if you don’t receive an acceptable score.

  • 3. Request your transcripts.

    Request copies of your official transcripts as soon as possible, as they can take time to print, prepare and mail. We need only one original transcript from each university you’ve attended.

    Note: If you attended a non-U.S. institution, you must provide the official transcript and a transcript evaluation with a course-by-course analysis conducted by a transcript evaluation service such as World Education Services.

    Tip: It’s easiest to have the institution send your transcript directly to us (see step 7). However, if a transcript must first be mailed to you and then forwarded to us, make sure you do not break the seal upon receipt.


  • 4. Ask for two letters of recommendation.

    Letters of recommendation from supervisors who know you well should include:

    • details of your work history
    • thoughts on your competence as an employee
    • an explanation of why they think you’d be a successful MBA candidate.

    If you currently are a full-time student, you can have professors complete your letters of recommendation.

    Ask the writers to put their letters of recommendation in sealed envelopes with their signatures on the back flap.

    Tip: Give those individuals who are writing your letters of recommendation at least two weeks—but preferably a month—to complete the task. This allows them to take their time and craft excellent letters.

  • 5. Prepare and submit your resume.

    Your resume can be emailed or mailed to the address listed in Step 7.
  • 6. Write your personal statement.

    Your personal statement is important, so take your time writing it. Tell us why you’re pursuing an MBA. Tell us about your short- and long-term goals. Tell us why you’ll be a successful graduate student. Keep the statement to 1,000 words or less, and proofread it carefully to spot and correct any spelling and grammatical errors. You can submit your essay with your online application or submit it at a later time.

    Tip: Make sure your essay is well written and exhibits a high level of academic and professional competency. Again, don’t forget to proofread for grammatical and spelling errors.
