The Executive MBA Admissions Committee evaluates each candidate for the Tulane Executive MBA program based on these admission criteria.
Professional Experience and Leadership Potential
Applicants should have a minimum of seven years of full-time postgraduate work experience, with five of those years in a position of significant management responsibility. The Committee will consider exceptions based on career progression, depth and breadth of experience, and level of management responsibility.
In assessing a candidate's academic ability, the committee considers the candidate's professional history and academic performance as evidenced by a resume and transcripts.
Submit/upload a resume detailing your employment history and academic background. List professional distinctions, affiliations, and activities. Describe honors, awards, scholarships, publications, and recognitions. Describe significant college, community, and professional activities.
Degree Requirements and Transcripts
A bachelor's degree is required; however, neither a business degree nor specific business courses are required for admission. Official transcripts from the registrar of all colleges and universities attended must be requested by the candidate and sent directly to the applicable Admissions Office at Tulane University. Email and postal mail addresses are listed at the bottom of this page.
A limited number of non-degreed candidates may be admitted to the program as an exception to admission policies. The admission process for non-degreed applicants is competitive, highly selective, and only outstanding candidates will be considered for admission. The GMAT is required for all non-degreed candidates.
GMAT scores may be required for admission to the EMBA program. Requests for GMAT waivers are considered on a case-by-case basis.
The interview aids the Committee in assessing the candidate's strengths, motivations, personal commitment, and ability to meet the demands of the program. The interview also offers the candidate an opportunity to ask questions and to discuss individual considerations with the program director. Contact the applicable program office to schedule an interview. Early interviews are encouraged.
Two recommendations, attesting to the applicant's academic and professional abilities, are required. One recommendation should be from a high-ranking officer from the candidate's organization. A second should be from an immediate supervisor (or for self-employed applicants, a business associate) who has personal knowledge of the candidate's work.
