Pre-MBA Programs

The Carlson School of Management offers pre-MBA programming for individuals interested in earning an MBA. These programs are designed to introduce prospective MBA students to business through various leadership, training, and site visit opportunities. 

We currently offer two programs: Project Emerge and MBA in Two. 

UG Project Emerge students

Project Emerge

Project Emerge, Camp Emerge, and Camp Ignite are a series of programming organized by the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management. The goal of these programs is to highlight and amplify diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and voices on our campus through a speaker series, career planning sessions, networking and mentorship opportunities, an MBA application readiness workshop, and more.

MBA in Two

MBA in Two is a selective, deferred admissions program designed specifically for domestic undergraduate seniors. Students apply and receive a decision during their senior year; if admitted, they venture into the workplace to gain two years of professional experience before entering the Carlson Full-Time MBA program.
