EMBA Admissions Overview: Apply to the Scheller EMBA Program

An MBA may be three short letters, but those letters put you on the path to lifelong success. It's a signal to employers, leaders, and innovators that you have what it takes to propel yourself and your organization to the next level of success.

We invite you to apply to the Georgia Tech Scheller College Executive MBA (EMBA) program.

  • Start August 2019. Graduate December 2020.
  • EMBA Applications are reviewed as they are received.
  • Priority Deadline: April 1, 2019
  • June Deadline: June 30, 2019*

    It’s not too late to start your MBA journey this fall!

    * We highly recommend you submit your application in advance of our June 30th deadline, but we will continue to accept and review applications until the cohorts are full.

  • Working professional with minimum 5 years career experience
  • Accredited 4-yr. Bachelor’s degree

You may request a GMAT waiver to the program via a written request (2pgs max) that addresses your:

  • Quantitative experience in both your professional and academic history
  • Short & long term career goals
  • How a Georgia Tech MBA in Global Business or Management of Technology will help you reach those goals

    You are not required to request a GMAT waiver. If you have already taken your GMAT, just enter your score where indicated on the online application.

Contrary to popular thought, you DO NOT have to submit a completed application all at once to begin the process.

It’s easy to start your online EMBA application. You only need to submit 3 documents:

  1. Your resume
  2. Your unofficial college transcript(s)
  3. Your GMAT waiver written request (max 2 pages)
