- Evidence of exposure and success in areas of quantitative study during one's undergraduate and, if applicable, graduate coursework or in one's professional career;
- Evidence of business and/or financial acumen through one's prior career positions, current work, leadership roles and responsibilities, and industry experience;
- Evidence of appropriate written and verbal communication skills following a review of one's admission materials, written personal statement, and one's interview with the assistant dean or assistant director of EMBA programs.
It is the policy of all Sellinger admission committees to give promising applicants the opportunity to undertake graduate work. A careful examination of an applicant's academic and professional qualifications precedes every admission decision. The Executive Fellows MBA admission committee selects students on the basis of the following criteria:
- Relevant work experience
- Leadership potential
- Undergraduate achievements
- Interviews with the EMBA Program Manager or other Graduate Business Professionals
- Evidence of work ethic and a well-rounded individual as seen through work accomplishments, community service, and/or extra-curricular activities
The admission committee also considers other factors such as company endorsements, interpersonal references, other academic studies, professional certifications, and personal qualities such as solid communication skills, drive, and motivation.
