INTERNATIONAL MBA APPLICATION PROCESS

What does the ideal candidate for the International MBA look like? There’s no single answer – but the starting point is a willingness to transform yourself and your future by pursuing the next best you, with the help of trusted guides who share your passion for your career, your impact and your purpose.  ​

You’ll understand that the journey won’t be a simple one, but marked by highs and lows, successes and friction – and you’ll relish the challenge. You’ll recognize that the easy route doesn’t get you to where you want to be – but hard work and persistence do pay off. And you’ll know that you can’t maximize your potential on your own – and place your trust in our expertise and determination to work with you to become the next best version of yourself. ​
