Coming up – Round 1

We are about four weeks away from the September 4th Round 1 deadline. Still plenty of time to put together an application!

May I suggest starting by requesting your letters of recommendation? All you need to do is log into your application and share you recommenders’ names and contact info, and then we’ll reach out to them directly to submit a recommendation. Remember, they are doing you a favor, so it’s a good idea to give your recommenders plenty of time to write a strong letter. The best letters are from people who know you well in a professional context and who can provide specific examples.

For the first time, there are two MS/MBA joint degree programs – the MS/MBA: Engineering Sciences and the MS/MBA Biotechnology: Life Sciences – and those applications are due on the same deadline (September 4th). Why not see if you can earn not one, but two degrees in two years?

Good luck as you work through the application and the essay. Here are some tips I put together for different sections of the application that I hope are helpful. We are looking forward to reading your application and learning more about you.
