Professional Information

We seek students with IQ+EQ, a proven track record of success, a high potential for future leadership, and a well-articulated plan to achieve their career aspirations. 

  • Applicants come from a variety of professional backgrounds, such as consulting, financial services, entertainment, consumer products, nonprofits, and technology. No industry is favored over another.
  • Our Admissions Committee evaluates work experience not only in terms of years, but also in regard to the depth and breadth of an individual's experience, responsibilities, and progression.
  • Although academic work and internships do not count toward professional work experience, we review all work experience as part of the admission decision.
  • Post-university work experience is not required to apply.
