Application Requirements

Academic Record  

A four-year bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution or the international equivalent is required. International applicants with a three-year degree from an accredited institution are eligible to apply.

When you apply, you are required to provide a transcript from all colleges or universities you have ever attended. You do not need to submit official, paper transcripts to apply. If admitted, however, you will need to submit official transcripts to enroll. All offers of admission are conditional on the receipt and verification of official transcripts. Non-English transcripts should be translated into English. If your institution does not provide an English translation with the transcript, please obtain a notarized English translation.

GMAT, GRE or Executive assessment (EA)

Applicants to the Yale School of Management MBA for Executives program are required to submit scores from one of three standardized tests: GMAT, GRE or the Executive Assessment (EA). These tests are used as one way to measure an applicant’s quantitative, reasoning, and verbal abilities. There is no minimum score to apply. Have your official score report(s) sent directly to the Yale School of Management. You can request GMAT score reports through www.mba.com (use code 3TJ-BX-75). You can request GRE score reports from www.ets.org/gre (use code 5624). You can request EA score reports from www.gmac.com/ea (select Yale School of Management).

Exam preparation is often the most time-consuming part of the application process. We strongly recommend taking the exam early, after taking a formal exam preparation course, and/or taking the practice exams online.

professional Recommendations

 You are required to list two (2) individuals who will provide professional recommendations for you. Ideally, at least one of the recommenders should be in a position to assess your performance at your most recent job. Recommendation forms can be emailed directly to recommenders from the online application.

Employer Approval 

Designed for working professionals, the Yale MBA for Executives program aims to accelerate careers, where students can apply learning and grow personally and professionally as they progress through the program. A rich, discussion-based learning environment draws upon the real-time experience of classmates. The program therefore requires that students be employed or similarly professionally engaged for the entire duration of the program.

Resume

We highly recommend submitting a current resume that is only 1 to 2 pages in length, including recent professional experience. Please note that you must have a minimum of five years of post graduate professional experience as we seek to build a diverse class with industry knowledge.

Essays + Focus Area

We require two essays (500 words) and a supplemental essay (250 words), each with a prompt that will maximize your opportunity to share more about your life, professional and personal goals, and your alignment with your chosen focus area.

Application Fee

The application fee is $225 and can be paid online by MasterCard, Visa, or American Express. You will be prompted to pay the fee after submitting your completed online application.

Check your Status

Your application will be considered complete and ready for review once we have received your online application, payment, and all supplemental materials. You can check the status of your application at any time on your online status page.
