Yes. Below are a few tips for submitting a competitive application:
No. Fall is the only entry-term for our Full-Time MBA and MS programs.
Yes and no.
First and foremost, do not rush to submit your application just to hit the earlier deadlines. We would rather see your most competitive application – including retaking the GMAT for a more competitive score or waiting until an anticipated promotion goes into effect to strengthen your résumé – even if this means that you wait to submit your application for a later deadline.
Simon uses a waitlist to ensure that we can make admission offers across every application deadline. We do not have a specific number of available offers for any given application deadline - each year our offers vary, depending on the quality and size of the applicant pool.
Second, review our deadlines and take into consideration all that will need to be done to submit your application by your targeted deadline. This includes giving recommenders at least four weeks to submit their materials online on your behalf and receiving your copies of test scores and transcripts. Keep in mind that the timing for you to hear a decision from us varies, depending on which deadline you choose – those who apply for an early deadline with a complete application are guaranteed to receive their decision sooner.
Third, there is merit-based scholarship consideration available throughout all application rounds. As the application cycle progresses, available scholarship funds diminish; however, there will always be scholarship funds for highly qualified and competitive applicants.
In addition to application deadlines for each program and entry, we also accept and review applications submitted between advertised deadlines. While only those completed by the deadline are guaranteed decision notification by the date listed for that particular round, applications submitted between deadlines will be forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review as soon as they are complete. Admission decisions will be made between the notification deadline for the round that was “missed” and the next application round.
No. Applications may be submitted to only one program in an academic year.
A US equivalent bachelor’s degree is required for admission to any Simon Business School program. If you participated in a three-year bachelor’s program (e.g. BCOM) this will satisfy the education requirement for our program.
The non-refundable application fee is $150.00 US dollars and can be paid by credit card within the online application. Applications are incomplete until payment is received.
Admitted domestic students will receive an email in April with instructions on how to make their track selection on the post-submission screen of the online application. Admitted international students will receive instructions as part of the I-20/DS2019 process.
No. Please do not send us any official documents at the time of applying. We do not have the capacity to store paper items and therefore will not open, process, or review any hard copy materials sent to us.
Should an offer of admission be extended and then accepted, we will request official documents identified as part of your application at that time.
We suggest limiting your current résumé to two pages and including your employment, academic, and extracurricular history. For those without full-time work experience, internships should be included. For each position held, please provide the following:
Explain any gaps in your employment history and include post-secondary educational history, non-academic interests and activities, awards received, and examples of leadership roles.
Applicants who previously declined an offer of admission within the past 12 months may be eligible for a shorter reactivation process. Contact Simon Admissions at email@example.com for further information. All others are required to submit a new application.
