Weekend MBA

Admissions

The Weekend MBA Program admits new students in the autumn and spring quarters only. The application is available online nine months prior to the deadline. Application review is on a rolling basis. Typically, a decision response will be made between four to six weeks after a completed application is submitted.

It is required that you use our online application and provide supporting materials according to the following deadlines. We strongly suggest you register with the online system to receive emails about events and the application process. Your application must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CT (Chicago time) on the day of the deadline in order to be considered for an application round. This includes receipt of all online and mailed-in materials. Applications submitted after a deadline will not be considered for that quarter. 

Interviews

Interviews are required for all applicants to the Weekend MBA program and are conducted after submitting a completed application in the online system; and therefore, may be scheduled before and up to a few weeks after the application deadline.

Admissions interviews are conducted by the Admissions Committee, comprised of Chicago Booth staff, students, and alumni, and are held at Gleacher Center, our downtown campus. All interviews, regardless of the interviewer, receive equal weight in the evaluation process.

Once you submit your application you can schedule your interview. Interviews are conducted on weekdays at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m., as well as mornings and early afternoons on Super Saturdays around our application deadlines. Upcoming Super Saturday interview dates are as follows:

  • October 11, 2014
  • January 17, 2015
  • January 24, 2015
  • April 18, 2015

Decisions

Your application must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CT on the day of the deadline in order to be considered for an application round. This includes receipt of all online and mailed-in materials. Applications submitted after a deadline will not be considered for that quarter.
