Application Checklist

At Weatherhead School of Management, our admissions committee takes a holistic approach to reviewing applications and considers both an applicant’s academic history and work experience. When reviewing your profile for admission consideration, we require the following:

  • Online application

    The online application captures general personal, contact and demographic information as well as education and employment history. Applicants must submit a $100 application fee as part of the online admissions process. The application fee can be waived as an early application incentive.

  • One essay

    One essay is required. The essay must be double-spaced and a maximum of 500 words in length. For the essay, you’ll be asked to provide a personal statement describing your motivation for pursuing a master’s degree.

  • Current resume

    The resume should include all work experience. If you are an early-career applicant, it should also include part-time employment, internships and co-op employment.

  • Unofficial transcripts

    All applicants are required to submit unofficial transcripts of all post-secondary education for the application and review process. Please include your school’s grading scale. Separate transcripts are also required if you received any transfer credit from another university. You may upload these to the “Transcripts” section of the online application. If you are admitted to the program and decide to enroll, we will require your official transcripts at that time.

  • Two Recommenders

    Online MBA Applicants are only required to provide the names and contact information of their recommenders to submit a completed application and to receive an admission decision. Recommenders will receive the request to complete the recommendation and may do so but are not required to do so. If the recommender does not provide the recommendation, it will not impact the decision. If the recommendation is provided, it is only used as an additional data point if needed. Additionally, if the recommender does not provide a recommendation, it is possible that we will follow up with a recommender if we need additional insight.

  • Interview

  • International Students

    If you have or will have earned a three-year bachelor’s degree, you may need a transcript evaluation prepared by World Education Services (WES) or Education Credential Evaluators (ECE).
