Admissions

The JMSB MBA Admissions Committee reviews every application on an individual basis. The Committee looks for students with real-world work experience, strong academic credentials, clear career objectives, strong intellectual ability and leadership potential, superior interpersonal and communication skills, motivation, maturity, and a commitment to excellence. Additional criteria, such as a record of active community involvement (although not required), may also be taken into consideration.

The selection process is competitive and thorough and candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible to the admission cycle of their choice.
