Posted by Rob C and Alison M on Nov 15, 2016 1:28:24 PM

Some schools operate on a rolling admissions schedule, while others use rounds.  Schools that use rounds expect that your application is complete and submitted by the posted deadline. All of the applications that were submitted by that deadline are reviewed together.  The next batch of applications will be reviewed after the next deadline has passed.

Posted by Tony Reed on Oct 31, 2016 2:14:21 PM

"Diversity" was not a word you'd hear-- or see with your eyes-- often in business schools when they were first established. Schools were filled with people holding similar backgrounds and viewpoints -- and no understanding of how attainment of diversity can help an organization succeed (let alone create greater good).

Fast-forward to 2016 at the Fisher College of Business. In addition to various recruitment and retainment efforts aimed at making the school representative of the world outside its doors, diversity is infused into the curriculum. A popular class, taught by Professor David Greenberger and Associate to the Dean Francisco Gomez-Bellenge, is Managing Diversity. Both are proud of this unique class and what it offers students-- and share their insight below.

If you’re looking to pursue a graduate degree in business, you may automatically think about an "MBA." This may be all you know about graduate business degree options.
