Criteria & Process
Below is general information about admission to the MQM program.
The 2017-2018 MQM application will be available in late-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 graduate business school research and have decided that Duke Fuqua is the best school for them. Applicants admitted in the Early Action round must submit the $2,000 tuition deposit along with official transcript(s) by November 14, 2017. In addition, any applications submitted to other schools must be withdrawn upon an offer of admission from Duke. In the same regard, once an offer of admission has been received, applications to other schools may not be submitted.
International applicants who require a student visa should apply in Early Action, Round 1 or Round 2. The time required to obtain a visa will not be sufficient if Round 3 or Round 4 is selected.
Candidates wishing to be considered for merit-based scholarship awards should apply in Round 1 or Round 2. Scholarships are awarded in the Early Action Round; however, the binding nature of the Early Action Round will require you to attend with or without a scholarship award. Scholarship awards in Round 3 and Round 4 will be limited, if available.
