MBA Admissions Updates

This August, Scheller College welcomed an impressive group of new MBA students, including 81 Full-time and 81 Evening MBA students. To expand our recruiting reach this year, we hosted Management Leadership for Tomorrow's (MLT) Summer Seminar, which brought more than 280 diverse MBA candidates to campus to learn about Scheller College and how to succeed in the competitive MBA admission process. We also recently completed our first international recruiting trips to Japan and Korea and are recruiting in India this month. As many of you know, we are a sponsor of the Fort Foundation, an organization that helps women advance through access to business education and professional opportunities. With Fort, MLT, and The MBA Tour, we have been promoting Scheller College locally and on the road in New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, and several other cities.

To help our newly admitted students have a smooth transition into the MBA program, the MBA Admission team and MBA Program team partnered to host summer pre-program webinars, during which new students learned how to prepare for the program. Many of our new students came to us through the more than 100 candidates our alumni referred to our program. Scheller College alumni are our best recruiters so please consider recommending your friends and colleagues through our online process, and inviting them to attend our MBA Open House on Saturday, November 4. We rely upon and are so grateful for all our alumni support. Thank you!
