EMBA Application Process

In order to complete the Executive MBA application, you will need the following items:

  • Current resume
  • All unofficial transcripts from previous institutions in digital form (you can scan a hard copy or upload a pdf)
  • Completed online application form, including 2 essays
  • At least one recommendation form submitted through our application system:
    You can submit up to two recommendations. Our advice for strong recommendations is to select someone who knows you well professionally:
    • A current or previous supervisor;
    • A senior manager or colleague with an MBA

The EMBA Program requires 8 years of post undergrad work experience to apply. Because of this, our students do not need to take a standardized test ( GMAT/GRE).
Please submit all application items digitally within our online application. If you have any questions about the online application, please email the Director of EMBA Admissions at jafuller@smu.edu
Once all your application materials have been received, the Executive MBA office will contact you if an in-person interview is appropriate. Following your in-person interview the Admissions Committee will provide you with a decision within two weeks.
