*Sept 4 2019*
Following on from my earlier article on 'Global Round 1 MBA Deadlines' for this month September 2019, we are fast approaching October! You know what that means? That means Round 2 Global MBA deadlines are coming up too - from next month October onward into next year!!
In the chart above we have listed the deadlines of many of the top b-schools for Round 2 application submissions.
Generally, it is best to apply to the premier programs in Round 1 or Round 2, as accepted seats tend to be evenly split. To be honest, there isn't much difference between applying Round 1 or Round 2, as the key remains to submit your 'BEST' application! However, it is my opinion that regular candidates should not apply later than Round 2 - extremely unique candidates or those coming from very non-traditional backgrounds may apply later but I would still advise 'the sooner the better' :)
For Round 1 MBA deadlines, we worked with the most wonderful candidates applying around the world. We are doing the very same for Round 2.
Our most notable Round 1 clients this year for the incoming MBA class of 2020 have been: (1) a gender equality activist from France who works with local government to promote change in a difficult climate, (2) a tech whizz from the Middle East who wants to revolutionize the oil and gas industry, (3) a serial entrepreneur from India with 7 successful startups under his belt, (4) a finance services guru who overcame severe health and disability in the USA, and (5) an investment management advisor who raps in his spare time. These are just to name a few!
If you know anyone who needs help in the MBA application process for Round 2, do send them our way!
We love what we do and that is getting great people into great schools.
