A Comprehensive Review

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.

Application Process

The Georgetown MBA Program Admissions team is a resource for you as you work through the application process. The Admissions Committee evaluates applications holistically and makes decisions based on a collection of many factors: documents, personal interactions, test scores, and other items. See the application instructions for a complete list of requirements.

Competitive applicants for admission to the Georgetown MBA Program hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and have substantial post-baccalaureate work experience. The average Georgetown MBA student has five years of work experience prior to enrolling in the program.

Official transcripts indicating previous academic achievement and official GMAT or GRE scores demonstrate an applicant’s aptitude for quantitative coursework and other analytical skills required by the Georgetown MBA Program. The Admissions Committee considers the qualitative aspects of the application and makes decisions based on a comprehensive review of applicants’ work experience, resumes, essays, and letters of recommendation, as well as an evaluative interview.

You must apply to the MBA program via our online application. Before you begin, read the application instructions thoroughly. Please note that your recommendation is required to be submitted online. The online application is available by mid-summer each year.

Application fee reduction and waivers are available. Read more about our policies and procedures  to see if you qualify.
