Admission to the program is competitive. Admission decisions are based on the candidate's entire portfolio, including academic achievements, nature of professional experience and promise, position, letters of recommendation, language fluency, as well as GMAT scores – if submitted.
The admissions process usually includes an academic interview by program staff, as well as an alumni interview.
In addition to academic promise, the admission committee considers these factors:
- Does the nominee’s organizational sponsor consider that he or she has outstanding promise and potential within the organization?
- Does the nominee have, or will he or she soon have, a position of executive responsibility that makes the program of value in furthering his or her career?
- Does the nominee have both the time and the motivation to make a two-year commitment to attend classes and prepare assignments?
