Step 1: Apply

Apply during your final year of undergraduate study using our streamlined Deferred Enrollment application.

*In order to be eligible for this program, you must be graduating from a bachelor’s degree program at an AACSB-accredited school or school with U.S. regional accreditation, and must apply during your final year of study but prior to the graduation date of your bachelor’s degree.

There are no application fees or GMAT/GRE requirements.

Step 2: Gain Experience

If admitted, you will have 2-5 years to begin either the Full-Time MBA or Professional Evening MBA at Questrom.  During that time, successful candidates must gain at least 2 years of full-time, professionally relevant work experience before beginning the MBA.  They may also decide to pursue another master’s degree – such as those offered by Questrom – so long as they still meet the minimum 2 year work experience requirement (referenced above) before beginning the MBA.

 

Step 3: Begin Your MBA**
When you are ready to begin the MBA program, you will need to submit a short “renewal application,” including an updated resume.  You will then have a pre-enrollment interview to determine your readiness to begin the program.  If you are approved to begin the program for the upcoming entry term, you will then need to submit a non-refundable deposit to secure your seat in the class.

Scholarships

All candidates admitted through the Deferred Enrollment Program are pre-qualified for a merit-based scholarship. To determine the amount of the award, candidates will first need to follow the steps above under “Begin Your MBA.” In addition to submitting the “renewal application” and conducting the pre-enrollment interview, we also encourage candidates to submit any additional materials they think would aid in the scholarship review process. If approved to begin the program for the upcoming entry term, candidates will be notified of their scholarship award at that time.
