Your application essays, recommendations, and interview are what weave fit, passion, and impact together into your "story." No one part is more important than the other, so give each one your best. And most importantly, just be you.
CV or Resume:
You must include a current 1-page professional resume. Please start with your current position and include employment information (full and part-time) and relevant volunteer work, internships, or student club or organization positions. Your education section should show dates of attendance and degrees received.
Your essay lets you share your perspective and help us understand what drives and inspires you, personally and at work. Use your essay to fill in any gaps or provide extra details on key areas of your application.
A recommendation provides a third-party perspective on your ability to succeed at Fuqua. Your recommendation should reflect your performance in a professional setting. Prepare your recommender so s/he represents you well and showcases aspects of you that are not reflected in other areas of the application.
You can schedule an interview once you begin the application process. Most interviews will occur via video-conference; North Carolina residents may have the opportunity to interview on campus by invitation. Both formats carry equal weight in the admissions process, and is required before your application is complete. Interviews are conducted by Fuqua staff who will ask you a variety of questions about your work experience, educational background, and personal interests. At the conclusion, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions.
During your interview, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Show us your interpersonal skills
- Discuss your educational background and personal interests
- Demonstrate how you and Fuqua are a good fit
