Masters In Business Administration (MBA) Deadlines

Tick Tock Tick Tock!!

MBA Deadlines

The clock is ticking fast and the first round of deadlines for MBA programs are fast nearing. You will never realize how the days pass when you drown yourself in the application process. This calls for a well planned out schedule for each part of your application process.

Also, the MBA program is one of the most sought after programs in recent years. The number of applicants is very large thus making the competition stiffer.

In this scenario, it is not only important to perfect your overall application but also is extremely crucial to know when the application deadlines are for each round, for each school that you choose to apply.

You see, as the deadline approaches, the stress levels go high and there might be a chance that you might not be able to get all the documents ready on time. Typically, an application for a MBA program requires you to submit your

  • CV
  • Transcripts
  • GMAT/GRE Official Score report
  • At least 2 Essays
  • 2 LOR and
  • English language test

It requires a good amount of time, usually 2 months or more, to finalize all these drafts.

The last thing you would want is that you miss the deadline, because, in the further rounds, the competition only gets stiffer. Missing deadlines could cost you an admit and all your efforts would go down the drain! To avoid all this, be aware of the deadlines for each of your target schools and make this application process a smooth one.

In this blog, first, we will go through the important MBA Deadlines for the top 20 schools. After that, we will explain how to go about in starting your application process so that you finish it on time. In the end, you also get some additional tips to keep in mind while applying for the MBA degree. Being management students ourselves and having undergone the same process ourselves, we know how much of a struggle it can be if there is not a clear go-to guide.

First off, here are the upcoming deadlines for some top 100 MBA B-Schools :

MAKE SURE TO PUT IN ENOUGH TIME FOR APPLICATION

MBA Deadlines

1. Choosing The Right School

Choosing the right school must be your first step when you initially are thinking about applying for your MBA degree. Typically, you should spend about 2 weeks of time in doing adequate and relevant research on the schools you would want to apply.

Another point to keep in mind would be that you must ideally apply to 4 to 5 schools. Out of these, 2 to 3 can be applied to your dream schools and the rest you must apply to those schools where you will get an admit for sure. This way you are on the safer end!

2. Decide Your Time Line

Once you choose the school, it is crucial that you keep in mind the various rounds of admissions. Typically, the second round starts from October to January. Applying in the early rounds gives you a benefit as the schools are trying to diversify their student profiles and there is usually less competition. The maximum competition is usually in the second round where most candidates choose to apply. The later rounds- the third and the fourth rounds are where late applicants apply and the overall application must be stellar to receive an admit in these rounds.

Do note that, the competition is quite tough from the second rounds. But don’t worry! With the right guidance and perfecting your essays and LoRs, you will be giving yourself a fair chance

3. Next, prepare for your GMAT/GRE

Management Aptitude Tests like GMAT and GRE require at least 4 months of prep depending on your strengths and weaknesses. The reason as to why these exams are important is mainly because these are international and all the students are judged on their aptitude on the same platform. Considering that most top B-schools receive applications from all over the world, each university in each country follows its own grading mechanisms to grade students. GMAT and GRE serve as a common platform to really know the candidate’s aptitude.

4. Analyze Your Application

Once you are done with your competitive exams, it is finally time to analyze your application and know your strengths and weaknesses in your profile. Some might have an abundance of internships or work experience but lack in extra-curricular activities while some have excellent grades and excellent GMAT/GRE scores but might lack in having some international exposure.

Make a list of all your achievements so as to focus on these more, in your applications. Here is a guide to craft the perfect resume https://www.mim-essay.com/ideal-mba-resume-format/.

5. Craft Your Essays

Most schools require you to write essays and these require a lot of introspection from your side to give it the best shot. That is why give yourself at least a month’s time to make your essays really stand out from the pool of applicants.

Remember that your essays must have your personal touch and express your views and achievements. Create multiple drafts and always seek an opinion of another person to review your essays.

6. Obtain Impressive LORs

Choosing the right recommender for your LOR is the first step in this process. Always choose a person who knows you well and has worked with you or provided you guidance. He/she must know your strengths and weaknesses well to properly right a recommendation.

It is advised that you approach your recommender at least 30 days before so as to give them an ample amount of time to craft that perfect LoR.

7. Conquer The Interview

If you get shortlisted for the interview round, then you are halfway forward towards your dream goal. Unlike your application process where you can re-edit your essays and LoRs, you only get one shot at the interview and it is imperative that you create a good impression about yourself.

Go through the common interview questions asked by the school and practice before an expert to know where you are going wrong.

Well, the application process is surely a lengthy one. But do enjoy the process as once you get admitted, you are welcomed into a whole other family and a world of opportunities waits for you at the other end.

Do make sure that you are aware of the Deadlines for the MBA Program for all the schools that you are applying to. Plan ahead in advance to strike gold in your attempt of getting into your dream schools. Best of Luck
