Rolling Admissions

Please keep in mind that we process applications on a rolling basis, and both admissions and scholarship decisions are handed out between application deadlines. You do not need to wait for a deadline to apply.

Admissions decisions are typically communicated within 4-6 weeks from the date of application submission. In situations of high volume, this can take up to 8 weeks. We encourage applicants to contact us if this timeline impacts decisions from other programs, so we can do our best to work within these competing timelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Admissions Committee would prefer to see two years (minimum) of quality, full-time work experience at the time of application that demonstrates impact, leadership potential and progression. To be considered for an exception, candidates would need to show above average or exceptional capabilities and progression for their years of experience, and would need to have at least two years by the time the program begins. We also encourage applicants to keep in mind that the average work experience of successful applicants is five years, and meeting the minimum requirement is not sufficient to for admission. The applicant pool is competitive, and work experience is assessed based on quality not quantity.
