We will be launching our new application for autumn 2018 no later than July 10, 2017. For the programs that accept applications twice per year (e.g. MBA for Working Professionals and Master of Human Resource Management), the spring 2018 application will also be available at this time. Here are some of the changes you can expect to see:
For all programs:
1. We will be introducing a required video interview that will enable each applicant to show your personality, demonstrate your communication skills and help us get to know you better. In return for adding the online video interview requirement, many of the programs (e.g. FT-MBA, SMF, MAcc, and MHRM) are removing one of the essay requirements.
2. We are providing each applicant a more personalized experience through a new online portal. This improved portal will include content that is specific to each applicant.
3. The new application portal and overall experience are mobile-friendly. Although you will need access to a laptop or desktop to upload documents, you will be able to work on 90% of your app on a mobile device if you wish.
MBA and SMF only:
Both the MBA and SMF programs are eliminating the recommendations requirement. If you are applying to either the MBA or SMF programs, in most situations you will not be required to submit references. (NOTE: You will be able to submit references if you wish - but the references will not be a requirement to complete the application for either program in most situations.)
It is very possible the new app will be posted before July 10. If you wish to be notified via email when the 2018 app is available, be sure to complete this online form. We will be sure to contact you as soon as it is ready.
