Admissions

Announcements for Applicants

August 1, 2013: Our Fall 2014 Application is now LIVE - Starting an application is free, we encourage you to begin exploring the application instructions and application components.

August 1, 2013: The Application Resource Guide is a great tool to reference more about the application components, deadlines and notification dates, the outline of the curriculum and opportunities to visit campus.

We seek to enroll as diverse a class as possible, and we welcome applications from individuals who have different professional backgrounds, undergraduate majors, and life experiences. As we review applications, we evaluate a candidate's professional experience, academic aptitude, and personal qualities. We conduct a comprehensive, holistic review of each candidate's resume, letters of recommendation, academic record, test scores, essays, record of extracurricular involvement, and evaluative interview.

Competitive applicants for admission hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and will have at least two years of post-baccalaureate work experience by the time they begin classes in August. On average, students begin our MBA program with five years of post-baccalaureate work experience. Our Fall 2012 entering class profile provides useful information for applicants.  In addition, we encourage you to connect with MBA Student Ambassadors and to engage members of our community through our campus visit programs.  These types of personal interactions will help you to gauge your fit for our program and ultimately will help you to craft compelling essays which speak to why you belong at Georgetown.

The Full-time MBA Program at Georgetown University recognizes that the business school application process requires much time and effort. We encourage you to review our Resource Guide for important information regarding the Full-time MBA Program and our admissions process. Our MBA Admissions team is also a resource for you during this important time. Once you apply, you will be assigned to an Admissions Advisor, who is available to answer all of your specific questions and to help you navigate the admissions process. Every application for admission is read carefully by at least two members of the Admissions Committee. Applications are then discussed in committee before a final decision is made. We are committed to ensuring that our process is a personal one, and by the time a decision is made on your application, we feel as though we know you.
