  • Complete the online application
  • 2 professional recommendations

More detailed information is available by downloading our Get Started Checklist. The Broad Executive MBA uses a rolling admissions process, reviewing applicants as soon as they become complete throughout our recruiting cycle.

After You Apply

Notification of the Admissions Committee decision is sent by e-mail. Once admitted to the Eli Broad College of Business Executive MBA Program, students make a non-refundable $1,000 deposit to hold their place in the class.

All incoming students are required to attend a 2-day orientation in early summer (see the Academic Calendar for dates). You will meet your classmates, your team, and our staff, gain best practices from a current student panel, and develop the strong team dynamics/priorities that are essential to your success. You will also hear from the residency faculty and receive your pre-course materials and assignments, providing you with a crucial foundation for your Executive MBA experience.

Classes officially begin in late summer, yet students should expect to do significant preparation between orientation and residency.
