Episode 83: Application Strategies – Deferred Enrollment MBA Programs

The list of requirements for MBA admissions can be extensive—test scores, recommendations, essays and, of course, work experience.  College seniors and graduate students may be well on their way to checking off all the boxes for an application to business school, but missing that final piece of full-time professional work experience.

Enter: Deferred enrollment MBA programs.

If you are a college senior or graduate student without work experience, you can apply to leading business schools through their deferred enrollment MBA programs.  These offerings allow students to enroll two to five years after they graduate from school, so candidates can gain work experience with their MBA plans already in place.

So, what does it take to apply for a deferred enrollment MBA?  This podcast episode is all about such opportunities.

Clear Admit’s resident admissions experts, Graham Richmond and Alex Brown, run through what exactly deferred enrollment programs are and why schools offer them.  They also highlight why deferred MBA programs may be a good fit for you, as well as offer key admissions tips and more.

Before you open your application, tune into this podcast episode!
