Graduate Admission Process

The Graduate Admission Office promises that you will have a thoughtful and timely response to your completed application. We are here to provide you with support during the admissions process, and to make the experience as transparent as possible while maintaining your privacy.  The admission process can vary by program. Please see the application checklist to ensure you have completed all necessary components.

IMPORTANT: You may submit one application per semester, and you can check the status of an existing application at any time. For Executive MBA (EMBA) Admissions, visit the EMBA website.

Our application for 2015 entry is now available! Please apply here.

Application Fee Waiver Eligibility

The Graduate Admission Office will waive the application fee for students who are currently members or alumni of the following programs:

To take advantage of this fee waiver, applicants should complete the entire online application. Once you reach the payment screen, please email admissions with your name, affiliation and University Identification (UID) number. Please state in the email that you have been offered an application fee waiver and your application is ready to be submitted. The admissions team will be happy to submit the application for you and send you a confirmation of submission.

MBA Advising Sessions

While we hope you get to know us through our various visit options, you may still have questions that you prefer to ask one-on-one. Schedule a face-to-face, on-campus advising session with a member of our admissions team.

This meeting will give you a chance to speak individually with an admissions committee member to ask your questions about the programs and admission process, and learn more about the opportunities available at the Boston University Questrom School of Business. Twenty minute appointments are available during the dates and times listed here.


Upon receiving and reviewing your application, the Admission Committee may contact you to schedule an interview. Interviews are offered only by invitation with a limited number of Off-Campus Interviews available.


Deadlines vary according to program. Please review the Application Deadline schedule and plan accordingly.
