Admissions

Simon students are the best of the best. We want to know if you are a self-starter with evidence of leadership and teamwork.

The Admissions Committee will also look to see if you have strong communications skills and are focused on career aspirations and academic excellence. Make no mistake; pursuing a Simon MBA is a rigorous and challenging enterprise, but the connections you’ll make and the rewards you’ll receive can bring returns that will last a lifetime.

We use a self-managed online application. This requires the applicant to accumulate the necessary documents to complete the process. Applications will be processed when they are submitted, although the Admissions Committee cannot review an application for a final decision until all materials are received and the application is complete. Once submitted, academic records, essays and recommendations may not be copied, borrowed, or returned.
