The Carlson School of Management is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive community that encourages all to reach their full potential through learning, working, and service. By enhancing and sustaining an ethical, culturally-grounded, and anti-racist institution, we will equip the leaders of tomorrow to live the values of “business as a force for good.”

To support building a diverse cohort of students, the Executive MBA program has merit-based scholarships of up to $20,000 per year available for well-qualified applicants from underrepresented populations and industries. Applicants will be automatically considered for scholarships as part of the application and interview process. Scholarships are not guaranteed and we recommend candidates apply as early as possible if they wish to be considered. May 15th is the priority application deadline for Fall 2023 scholarship consideration.
