MBA in Two is a selective, deferred admissions program designed specifically for domestic undergraduate seniors.
Yes, you must be a domestic student/U.S. resident to qualify for this program. Unfortunately, this program is not open to international students.
You are not required to have an undergraduate degree, coursework or work experience in business. The Carlson School recruits and admits students from a broad range of academic and professional backgrounds. About one-third of our students come from a traditional business undergraduate or professional background, another third of our students have a background in technology or engineering, and the last third have a background in a wide variety of disciplines and functional areas (such as non-profit, education, visual and performing arts, etc.).
Applications are reviewed as a whole and candidates are admitted into the program based on academic credentials and general fit for the program. The admissions committee will consider your academic performance (official transcripts for any post-secondary coursework and GPA), GMAT test scores, admissions interview, work experience, student involvement and achievements, personal statement, and professional/academic references.
Admissions interviews are by invite only; only selective MBA in Two applicants will be invited to interview. After you have submitted your complete application, you will be considered for an admissions interview.
MBA in Two candidates who apply for our Full-Time MBA program are automatically considered for academic scholarships and fellowships through the admissions review process - no additional applications are needed. Our academic scholarships and fellowships are highly competitive, with a typical scholarship recipient scoring a 700 on their GMAT.
There is no preference. We encourage you to take the exam you are most comfortable with.
Yes. If you take the GMAT or GRE more than once, the admissions committee will consider your highest score.
To be considered for MBA in Two, seniors must submit a complete application by July 1 of their graduating year. However, we will continue to accept applications for the program until September 1 of that same year.
Admissions decisions for the MBA in Two program will be provided to applicants 4-6 weeks after their submission deadline.
Undergraduate college students apply during their senior year or right after graduating and receive a decision in the months following graduation. If admitted, candidates would enter the Carlson MBA Full-Time program after completing two years of professional work experience. For example, if you will be graduating May of 2016 and are admitted to the program, you will begin the Full-Time MBA program in fall of 2018. December graduates interested in the Full-Time MBA would start in the fall 2.5 years after graduating.
MBA in Two students participate in career coaching, professional development and mentorships with the support of the Carlson Graduate Business Career Center, along with student clubs and organizations - these opportunities are available to MBA in Two students even before starting the Full-Time MBA program.
