Evening MBA

Admissions

The Evening MBA Program admits new students four times a year, for the Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer quarters. The application is available online nine months prior to the deadline. Application review is on a rolling basis and therefore the application can be submitted prior to the deadline and will be reviewed prior to the deadline. The typical decision response time is four to six weeks after a completed application is submitted.

Chicago Business Fellows, a subset of the Evening MBA Program that targets individuals with zero to three years of post-undergraduate work experience, are admitted in the Autumn Quarter only. Applications are not reviewed on a rolling basis.

Here's an overview of the application process:

  • Application - It is required that you use our online application and provide supporting materials according to the following deadlines. We strongly suggest that you register with the online system to receive emails about events and the application process.
  • Interviews - Interviews are required of all applicants to the Evening MBA Program and are conducted after submitting a completed application in the online system, and therefore may be scheduled before and up to a few weeks after the application deadline. Admissions interviews are conducted by the Admissions Committee, comprised of Chicago Booth staff, students, and alumni, and are held at Gleacher Center, our downtown campus. All interviews, regardless of the interviewer, receive equal weight in the evaluation process.

Our office will contact you to schedule an interview once your application has been received. Interviews are conducted on weekdays at 4 p.m., 5 p.m., and 6 p.m., as well as mornings and early afternoons on Super Saturdays around our application deadlines. Super Saturday interview dates for 2014 are as follows:

  • April 19, 2014
  • May 31, 2014
  • June 7, 2014
  • July 12, 2014
