Access the Online Application Form
Each candidate is required to create an account and submit an application form.
A non-refundable application fee of $100 is required of all applicants. The fee is payable by credit card, personal check, cashier's check drawn from a U.S. bank or subsidiary, or wire transfer. Active-duty military, veterans and those who have served in humanitarian organizations such as the U.S. Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, etc. are eligible for an application fee waiver. Please contact [[m|admissions,MBA Admissions]] to receive a waiver prior to submitting your online application.
Please ensure that you are using a personal, easily accessible email address. Do not use a work or school email address when creating your online application.
We require a scanned copy of your transcript from your degree-granting institution to be uploaded into your online application.
Transcripts for study abroad programs or transfer credits are not required if the course and grade are included on the transcript of the degree-granting institution, but can be requested by the Admissions Committee if deemed necessary. If your transcripts are in other languages other than English, also submit translated versions. It is helpful to request official transcripts in advance of submitting your application, but it is not required. Unofficial transcripts are sufficient for our initial evaluation and admissions decision.
Once admitted, you will be required to provide an official transcript from your degree-granting institution. Official transcripts should arrive in a sealed envelope with the signature of the Registrar across the seal. Do not open official transcripts. Official transcripts can also be submitted electronically to Toni Sturdivant at [[m|toni.sturdivant]] via your institution's electronic vendor and using secure portals. A transcript sent directly by the applicant will not be accepted as official. William & Mary graduates are only required to upload an unofficial transcript.
Submit Two Recommendations
Your recommender should be someone who can provide specific and relevant information about your intellectual and professional abilities, performance, and motivation to pursue an MBA degree.
If one of your recommenders is not able to complete the recommendation letter online, a recommendation form may be submitted by mail. The form can be found in the supplemental application forms section of the online application.
We require a response to the first essay question and offer you the opportunity to submit an optional personal statement.
At the top of each page, please put your full name and a complete statement of the question being answered.
- Why is an MBA the next logical step towards achieving your short-term and long-term professional goals? Why is the William & Mary MBA the right program for you? (approx. 800 words)
- Optional: Is there any additional information that you would like to share with the Admissions Committee which would be helpful in reviewing your application? (approx. 250 words)
Upload Professional Resume
Most of William & Mary MBA candidates will have obtained several years of post-undergraduate professional experience. However, the impact a candidate has made on an organization, growth in responsibility over time, leadership experience and other factors are all considered when evaluating experience.
Candidates with limited professional experience must be strong in other aspects of their MBA application, including academic performance, demonstrated leadership achievement, campus or community involvement, and possess clearly articulated goals to offset the lack of experience.
We encourage you to limit your resume to two page - one page resumes are preferred.
Interview with the Admissions Team
An interview is the last step of the Admissions process. Interviews are offered by invitation only to candidate whose applications have passed through an initial evaluation. We encourage you to conduct the interview in person in conjunction with a campus visit, but we understand that this is not possible for all candidate. For applicants unable to meet in person, interviews are also offered via phone, Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts, or in select cities around the world.
All students admitted to graduate programs at the Raymond A. Mason School of Business must have a conferred bachelor's degree from an accredited institution prior to matriculation.
