How Will COVID-19 Affect Your MBA Applications?

by mbaMission, Apr 6, 2020



Over the past several weeks, the effects of the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 global pandemic have been felt far and wide—and business schools are no exception. Many admissions officers at U.S. MBA programs are suddenly encouraging more prospective students in the United States to consider applying in Round 3 of the 2019–2020 application season, given that large numbers of international applicants may need to defer their admission. In addition, several U.S. and international programs have opted to extend application deadlines and modify test-taking requirements for the remaining application rounds. Many applicants have also been clamoring for helpful information on the GMAT and GRE “at home” testing options being offered in light of recent test center closures around the globe. Despite the promise of flexibility by business schools and test centers, many applicants are left wondering: what is next?

Given the uncertainty in the world today, should you continue moving forward with your application plans? If you have already been accepted to business school, should you attend? What is in store for MBAs in the era of COVID-19 and its aftermath?

In our new webinar, Applying in the Time of COVID-19, mbaMission explores the changing admissions dynamics for 2020 and 2021 and advises applicants on how to use this unexpected free time to become their most competitive. Are you aware of the many opportunities available to volunteer online? Have you considered ways to build morale and camaraderie while working remotely? Did you know that you can study for and even take the GRE (and soon the GMAT!) online and bolster your quantitative profile through distance learning courses? These are just some of the topics covered in this complimentary webinar.

Now is still a great time to strengthen your MBA candidacy. Join mbaMission’s founder and president, Jeremy Shinewald, as he presents the mbaMission Applying in the Time of COVID-19 webinar on the following dates:
