Key Dates and Deadlines

When it comes to applying, there are five deadlines to choose from. We recommend sending your application prior to the deadline. That way you avoid the rush and get ahead with the process.

So the sooner you apply, the better. Applying early will give you more chances to earn a scholarship as well.

*Due to COVID-19, we want to give our candidates more flexibility by allowing for rolling admissions throughout May and June 2020. Applications will be reviewed every 2 weeks. Expect the time between submission and final decision to be around 6 weeks. Important to note, that in order to give a final decision, a GMAT/GRE score will be required. Please check our FAQs.
