Interviews

Interviews are the most critical part of the evaluation process—for you and for us. Interviews are designed as a mutual conversation where our discussion focuses on three essential questions:

  1. Are you prepared to succeed in this program?
  2. Will we be offering you high value? Does this program fit your academic needs and goals?
  3. What distinctive talents, skills and expertise will you bring to the community?

ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY

International applicants whose baccalaureate degree was not completed in English must provide evidence of English proficiency by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

Priority ADmissions

Priority applicants to whom we offer admittance will be invited to special events to begin building connections with their classmates and the larger BGI community.

ROLLING ADMISSIONS

Once a published deadline has passed, applications to all programs are accepted on a rolling basis through the start of the quarter. We strongly recommend that you complete the application process early. We recommend you apply by the priority deadline of January 31, 2014, as interest in these programs are high and seats in the class are limited. If this deadline has passed, we recommend our regular admissions deadline May 1, 2014. When a program reaches capacity, admitted students will be wait listed for the next available start date.

Final Admissions

Late applications are accepted on a case-by-case basis depending on seat availability. Applications for the MBA in Sustainable Systems received after August 1 are subject to prior Dean approval.

Wait List UPON ENrollment

When an MBA program reaches capacity, accepted students may be offered the opportunity to enroll in a Certificate program and be placed on a wait list for the next available MBA program start date. Please contact admissions@bgi.edu for information on certificate credit transferability to the MBA programs.

PREREQUISITES FOR ENROLLED STUDENTS

Students who enroll in a BGI MBA program are required to complete a prerequisite online financial accounting course through Harvard Business School prior to their first quarter. Please contact admissions@bgi.edu with any questions.
