Summer 2021 Application Requirements

The Anderson School of Management has approved a temporary MBA admission process for the Summer 2021 application cycle. The following policy and procedures do not pertain to the Executive MBA (EMBA) or MBA in Educational Leadership (MBA-ED) programs.

Applicants will be evaluated in two rounds. Applications for both rounds are due on February 1, 2020. All applicants must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university in the United States or its equivalent in another country (unless applying for a shared credit program).

Round 1 (R1) continues the current admission process. During R1, applicants with acceptable entrance exam scores (either in-person or through an online alternative taken on or before the deadline) and those qualified for our existing exam waiver are evaluated. Qualified R1 applicants are offered admission.

Round 2 (R2) is a competitive admission process. R2 applicants will not be required to submit an entrance exam, but will be required to submit a personal statement and resume here in addition to the existing application and materials. These applicants will be offered admission based on 1) the demonstration of qualifications that support the potential for success at the Anderson School of Management and 2) program capacity.

We strongly encourage those who have the ability to take an entrance exam to do so, as qualified applicants who have met our entrance exam requirements will be offered priority admission. Evaluations for Round 2 applications will begin after the deadline.
