Round 3 is the recommended final deadline for international applicants.

What Do I Need to Submit by the Deadline?

A complete MBA application to Fisher comprises:

  • Application data form
  • Unofficial transcripts for all degree-related coursework (four-year bachelor’s degree or equivalent required)
  • GMAT or GRE score, unless the candidate has secured a test waiver
  • A one-page resume
  • Reference contacts
  • Essay response
  • Video interview
  • Application fee: $60 domestic, $70 international

Applicants who completed their undergraduate degrees at non-English-speaking institution are asked to have their records translated, and to submit the translation to the admissions office along with an official transcript.

Applicants may choose to either list their references or have Fisher admissions send an OPTIONAL electronic letter of recommendation request to each recommender. The adcom may contact the references during the admissions process. Requesting a recommendation is optional. The video interview does not take the place of the live interview. Once an application is started, applicants will receive an email invitation to complete the video interview. Although the school suggests completing the video interview within 2 weeks, the link will not expire. Via the Kira Talent platform, the video interview should only take 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Autumn 2024 classes begin on August 20, 2024.

Live Interview

Live interviews are conducted on an invitation-only basis. The adcom conducts interviews in-person (recommended for domestic applicants) or online via Skype.
