Looking to step through that door? You’re almost there.
You’re selective. So are we.
We’re looking for Type V Personalities. And if you haven’t gotten it by now—that means that when crafting our class, we’re looking for more than the typical MBA student. The program is rigorous, so as a baseline, we need to see indicators that show us you’ll be successful in the classroom—and that is where your GPA, GMAT, and work experience come into the equation.
What else in the mix? We need to see that you’re the type that has drive, the type that works well in a collaborative environment, and the type that cares about the intersection of business and the community.
We need to see that you’re a Type V Personality. Your resume, transcripts, and recommendations help paint a picture for us of who you are—but in your essays you have the unique opportunity to show us a bit more. It’s so important to us that we know you are a Type V Personality that we’re not just suggesting you tell us—we’re asking you to. You’ll see what we mean when you read our application essays.
* GMAT may be waived for candidates with a terminal degree. Please contact us for more information.

* The GMAT range represents middle 80% of class.
** We know numbers don’t always paint the full picture. The class profile represents averages and ranges only. Historically, admitted applicants have fallen below, between, and above the metrics stated in this chart, as the admissions process is holistic and takes into account a variety of factors. We encourage all interested to apply as we strive to assemble a class with diverse work experience, background and perspectives.
When you enter the classroom, do you want to challenge your peers? Challenge yourself? Take risks? Listen? Do you have something to add to the group that would simply be absent if you weren’t in it? If you think you’re a Type V Personality, tell us why. Apply Now.
