Duke - The Fuqua School of Business

Admissions

Why Duke

Bloggers share their reasons for choosing Duke:

How will you fit in at Fuqua?

The Fuqua School of Business is a challenging and rigorous academic institution to which admission is highly selective. Acceptance is based on the ability to excel, not only academically, but also in the business community.

Pursuing a business degree is a significant investment of your time, energy, and money, so it is important that you find the right program to help you achieve your personal and professional goals. "Fit" with a program occurs at the intersection of your story and ambitions and the school's story and ambitions. Before you apply, take some time to reflect on both.

We are not yet accepting applications for the next Daytime MBA Class, which starts in 2018 and graduates in 2020.  The 2017-2018 Daytime application will be available in mid-July.

Given the competitive applicant pool, you are encouraged to apply in the round in which you can submit your "best" application.

The Early Action option is ideal for applicants who have completed their MBA research and have decided that this is the best program for them. Applicants admitted in Early Action must submit a tuition deposit along with official transcript(s) by December 8, 2017. 

If your ability to enroll is dependent upon receiving merit-based scholarship assistance, you should apply during Early Action, Round 1, or Round 2.

International Applicants: you must apply during Early Action, Round 1, or Round 2 for visa processing.

Re-applicants: reapply for during Early Action or Round 1.
