Notification & Process

Our application is currently closed and undergoing annual updates. The 2019-2020 MBA application will be available in early summer.
Check the Status of Your Application
You can check the status of your application at any time on your application status page. Your application status page indicates any missing application requirements, and you are able to upload outstanding or supplemental materials directly to this page. 
  • You will receive an email confirmation once you have submitted your application. Your application will not be processed until your application fee has been received.
  • Initial notifications will begin shortly after the first application deadline and continue on an ongoing basis.

Initial Notification
If your application was complete by the deadline, you will receive an initial notification no later than the initial notification date for that deadline. 

Initial Notification possibilities are as follows:
  • Offer of admission (Part-time MBA only)
  • Interview invitation*
  • Waitlist offer
  • Denial of admission
*The Admissions Committee conducts a very limited number of interviews for the Part-time MBA program. The majority of Part-time MBA program admission decisions are made without an interview.

For all programs, please note that you may be placed on the waitlist or denied admission without being interviewed.

Interviews and Post-Interview Decision
Interviews are available by invitation only. You will be able to schedule your interview via your application status page.

Interviews are conducted in person in New York City. Interviews are typically conducted by our trained admissions professionals, who will have thoroughly read your entire application. 

Off-Site Interviews
For priority consideration for off-site interviews, apply by the November 15 deadline. We typically conduct off-site interviews in China, India and the United Kingdom in March, but the locations and timing are subject to change each year.

Note - due to the timing of the Tech MBA and Fashion & Luxury MBA courses, these off-site interviews are not available for applicants to these programs.

Alumni/Phone Interview Requests
Alumni or phone interview requests are almost never granted and should be requested only under extreme circumstances. We expect you to interview in person in New York City or at one of our designated off-site interview locations.
Post-Interview Decision
After the interview, it will typically take up to three weeks to receive a post-interview decision. There are three possible post-interview decisions:
  • Offer of admission
  • Waitlist offer
  • Denial of admission

Offer of Admission
If offered admission, you will view an online admission letter on your application status page. If you have been awarded any scholarships, that information will be part of your admission letter. In addition, you will be given access to our Admitted Student Website.
Waitlist Offer
In our admissions process, you may be placed on the waitlist without being interviewed and/or after being interviewed. If you are placed on the waitlist, you will receive additional information about the waitlist process at that time. 

All decisions made by the Admissions Committee are final.
