Duke - The Fuqua School of Business


If you  applied to the MMS: FOB program for the Class of 2017, you are considered a re-applicant for the Class of 2018. Re-applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by the Round 3 deadline of Jan. 30, 2017.

You are required to complete a new online application for this year in its entirety, including one new letter of recommendation. This is to ensure that your application represents who you are now, not who you were last year. Re-applicants do not need to re-submit GMAT/GRE test scores unless the scores have expired. Re-applicants must complete the re-applicant essay as well as the short answer questions and essays that are required for all applicants. Essay details are on the Application Instructions page.

Re-applicant Essay: It is not uncommon for it to take more than one try to achieve a goal. Please share with us the self-reflection process that you underwent after last year's application and how you have grown as a result. How did it shape your commitment to Fuqua and inspire your decision to reapply?

  • Respond in no more than 2 pages, using 1.5 line spacing and a font size no smaller than 10-point.
  • You can access the re-applicant essay in the online application.
