Your resume, 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.
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 essays allow us to get to know you as a person—what drives you and inspires you. You have the chance here to fill in any gaps or provide extra details on key areas of your application.
Recommendations provide a third-party perspective on your ability to succeed at Fuqua. One recommendation should reflect your performance in a professional or volunteer setting, and the other should come from a current or former professor and reflect your performance in an academic setting. Prepare your recommenders so they represent you well and showcase aspects of you that are not reflected in other areas of the application.
We do not offer open interviews for MMS candidates. Interviews will be extended by invitation after careful review of your application materials. Most interviews will occur via Skype; North Carolina residents may have the opportunity to interview on campus by invitation. Both formats carry equal weight in the admissions process. Interviews are conducted with individual applicants by staff, alumni, or select second-year MBA students.
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
