Your resume, application essays, recommendation, and interview are what weave fit, passion, and impact together into your "story." No one part is more important than the other, so give each one your best. And most importantly, just be you.
You must include a current 1-page professional resume. Please start with your current position and include employment information (full and part-time) and relevant volunteer work, internships, or student club or organization positions. Your education section should show dates of attendance and degrees received.
Your essays allow us to get to know you as a person—what drives you and inspires you. You have the chance here to fill in any gaps or provide extra details on key areas of your application.
Recommendations provide a third-party perspective on your ability to succeed at Fuqua. One letter of recommendation is required and should come from someone who knows you in a professional context, such as a supervisor at an internship or place of employment. If you are unable to provide a professional recommendation, you may submit a recommendation from someone who knows you through school and can speak to your performance in an academic setting. Please clarify if you select this option in the Optional Essay. You may not submit more than one recommendation. Prepare your recommender so they represent you well and showcase aspects of you that are not reflected in other areas of the application.
We do not offer open interviews for MQM: Business Analytics candidates. Interviews will be extended by invitation after careful review of your application materials. Most interviews will occur via video-conference; North Carolina residents may have the opportunity to interview on campus by invitation. Both formats carry equal weight in the admissions process. Interviews are conducted with individual applicants by staff, alumni, or select second-year MBA students.
During your interview, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Show us your interpersonal skills
- Discuss your educational background and personal interests
- Demonstrate how you and Fuqua are a good fit
