Application requirements

To apply for the Lindner MBA you will be asked to provide the following information:

  • Current résumé
  • Essay (you can preview the essay for your program by starting an application)
  • Scanned transcripts
  • Contact information for two references who will provide letters of recommendation electronically, we prefer at least one professional reference
  • IELTS, TOEFL or Duolingo score (International applicants only)

Note: GMAT/GRE exam is optional for the 2024 academic year. See Entrance Exams Information page for details. The admissions committee reserves the right to request a score. 

Next steps

Full-time MBA cohort applicants who are chosen to move past the first round of application review will be asked to submit a virtual interview proctored by Kira Talent. You will be notified via email when selected for this round and will have two weeks to complete the interview.

The program makes every effort to review and respond to applicants in a timely manner, typically within two to three weeks of the application being completed. During peak periods, or very early in the admission cycle, additional processing time may be needed.
