MBA Admissions Counselor Connie Swarts

Global Executive MBA Admissions Counselor

Connie Swarts, your admissions counselor, can help guide you through the admissions process.

Additional Information

If you applied to the program for the previous year, you are considered a re-applicant for the class of 2014. Before you begin the admissions process again, please contact Admissions Counselor Connie Swarts at +1.919.660.7705 or global-mba-info@fuqua.duke.edu as soon as possible. Connie will provide you with specific guidelines regarding re-application.

Depending on when you first applied, you may be required to complete a new online application for this year, including one recommendation, sponsorship letter, and an updated resume. This is to ensure that your application represents who you are now, not who you were last year. In addition, you must complete the re-applicant essay as well as the 2 essays that are required for all applicants.

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?

  • Responses should be no more than 2 pages, using 1.5 line spacing and a font size no smaller than 10-point.
  • Make sure you address any gaps in your application and that you show progress. 
  • You can access the re-applicant essay in the online application.
