Next Steps

You’ve submitted your application for admission. Now what? Here’s what to expect:

Admissions Interview
After we evaluate your application, you may be invited to participate in an admissions interview. All interviews receive equal weight in the evaluation process, whether they are conducted by admissions staff, students, or alumni.

Admissions Decisions
Each of our campuses has its own process and timeline for admissions decisions. Once your application is complete, you can generally expect to receive an admissions decision between 4 and 6 weeks or less. Your regional admissions team will work closely with you throughout the process. If you have questions about decision dates, please contact Booth Admissions in Chicago, London, or Hong Kong.

Gain Support from Your Employer
Enrolling in the Executive MBA Program involves a serious time commitment. Once you have been admitted, you will need to submit a letter of company support certifying that your employer will allow you to attend all class sessions. It is important to approach your employer early in the process to make a thoughtful case for attending the program, and we have developed a guide to help you request support.
