Requirements

The Simmons MBA Admission Committee seeks applicants who demonstrate solid accomplishments in educational and professional settings, have at least two years of full-time work experience, and possess leadership potential. In making its decisions, the Committee aims to measure the suitability of each applicant's background with a rigorous program of study, to help ensure that students will achieve academic success in the program and professional success thereafter. The Committee does not follow a formula in making its decisions; rather, it strives to evaluate a candidate's ability, aptitude and promise. Candidates are encouraged to submit application components as they are completed. The Office of Admission will notify you upon receipt and will provide you with a reminder of what may be missing.

All candidates are required to submit the following materials:

  • A completed application form
  • Three essays
  • Two letters of recommendation
