Admissions Interviews

The Boston University Questrom School of Business admission committee interviews a significant number of applicants for our portfolio of graduate programs.The interview is an evaluative component of the application process and is conducted by a member of the admission committee.

MBA Pre-Application Interviews

Between August 3, 2015 and October 9, 2015, prospective MBA students can request an evaluative interview with a member of the admissions committee prior to submitting an application for admission. On-campus interviews will be available on Mondays and Fridays between 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, and off-campus interviews will be available on a space available basis in select locations (dates and times posted shortly).

To request a pre-application evaluative interview, please email your name, preferred date and location, and program of interest (Two-Year MBA, Professional Evening MBA, etc.) to mba@bu.edu. Additionally, you must attach your resume and test scores (GMAT or GRE and TOEFL / IELTS / PTE as appropriate) to your request. The admissions committee will respond to your request within 3 business days.

Please note: This will serve as your formal interview and will be used to evaluate you in the admissions process should you decide to submit an application for 2016 entry. You will not be granted another interview after submitting an application if you have conducted a pre-application interview.
