Hi everyone - we are looking forward to this year's MBA application cycle. I'm excited to share that the application will open on Tuesday, June 25th. As part of this year's application, you can expect some updates including changes to the essay prompt, which will be an opportunity for you to bring to life your journey and future aspirations.

You can start planning now by noting this year’s application deadlines. The deadlines are September 4th, 2024 for Round 1 and January 6th, 2025 for Round 2. The 2+2 Deferred Admissions deadline will be posted later this summer.

2+2 Next Steps: Interview Invitations

Thank you to everyone who submitted a 2+2 application for deferred admission to the Harvard MBA program. We are enjoying getting to know you better through your applications!

Each 2+2 applicant will receive news on May 29 at 12:00 PM noon Eastern Time via your Application Status page. There are two possibilities:

Invite to Interview – Congrats! If you are invited to interview, the online scheduling system will be live immediately and you will be able to choose the date and time of your interview. All 2+2 interviews will be conducted via Zoom by a member of the HBS Admissions Board.

Early Release – Unfortunately, we are not able to move you forward in the process. We hope you will think of HBS again in the future. Remember, we are very reapplicant friendly and 10% of our current MBA students are reapplicants.

On behalf of the whole team, thank you for sharing your stories with us.

Round 2 Application Decisions

Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 27th is the big day! At 12:00pm (noon) Eastern time, Round 2 decisions will be available via your Application Status page. We truly loved getting to know all of you. Tomorrow, there will be one of three decisions: Accept, Waitlist, or Release. Accept and Release are more self-explanatory; if you are invited to the waitlist, it means you are a strong candidate, but we have not made a final decision yet (please take it as a good sign!).

To all who applied to the Class of 2026, thank you for your interest in HBS and sharing your stories with us. You continue to inspire us, and we feel honored to have met you.
