Applying to the Full Time MBA programme.

Applying to the Full Time MBA programme.

What to expect.

You can submit your MBA application (for the Full-time MBA programme starting in January 2017) at any time during the year. Interviews and evaluations take place in rounds.

If you wish to be eligible for an interview round, you would need to submit your application by one of the dates below:
Monday, 4 April
Monday, 18 July
Monday, 12 September
Monday 7 November

Once we receive your application, a first evaluation will be conducted. We’ll invite eligible candidates to an admissions interview in the next available round. Interviews are conducted by an RSM alumnus or alumna, staff member or faculty member. Please note that we will only interview candidates that have submitted a full application including a GMAT or GRE score. The admissions team will make its decision and let you know as soon as possible after each evaluation round.

What we're looking for.

Professional experience
All applicants should have at least three years of post-graduate work experience and clear professional targets for your career.

Academic requirements
Candidates must have a university degree (bachelor, master, PhD) or equivalent, along with a valid GMAT/GRE report*.

Global mindset
Our MBA candidates must value diversity and work collaboratively with people from many different cultures.

English proficiency
Because clear communication is essential in our classrooms, students should be strong English speakers. We don’t require TOEFL, IELTS or PTE scores initially, but the admissions committee may request them at any point during the admissions process.

Soft skills
Our students have the intangible skills that lead to success. These include qualities like leadership potential, effective communication skills, professional drive, maturity, creativity, adaptability, independence and self-confidence. 

* Contact the admissions office if you wish to be considered. The GMAT/GRE can be waived for PhD graduates.
