Item 1: Submit Current Resume
Current resume with three academic or professional references on last page including: reference name, title, company, contact information.
Item 2: Submit Statement of Purpose
Submit a minimum 2 page document explaining your passion and desire for entering this program including goals and decision influences for pursuing this Executive PhD. This is your opportunity to showcase your research interests and professional objectives to the admission’s committee.
Item 3: Submit Unofficial Transcript(s) or Unofficial Transcript Evaluation
Upload your unofficial transcript(s) from both your bachelor’s and master’s program or transcript evaluation (this step is NOT required for FAU graduates). If you only have an official copy of your transcripts or evaluation, please mail them to our office.
Item 4: Submit Unofficial GMAT/GRE Score
Applicants that have completed the GRE/GMAT, please upload your unofficial GMAT or GRE score.
Item 5 (if applicable): Submit Unofficial TOEFL or IELTS Exam Score
Applicants that have completed the TOEFL or IELTS, please upload your unofficial score. This is only required for students on an F-1 visa where English is not the primary language in their home country. Applicants who have completed a minimum of two years of postsecondary education in the United States are exempt from this requirement.
Item 6: Submit Letters of Recommendation
The supplemental application includes a "Recommendations" tab with space to enter three email addresses corresponding to your recommenders. If email addresses are entered, please notify your recommenders that they can expect a request from you - via email - containing a link to our database. Alternatively, upload scanned letters of recommendation. Recommenders should be academic (professor, instructor) or professional (colleague, manager, associate) and can be a subset of your references.
Step 2 - Interview
Once you have completed step 1, the admissions committee will review your application.
After review, our admissions office will notify you with the admissions decision.
If the admissions decision is positive, the admissions office will schedule an interview.
Interviews are by invitation only. Interviews are a required step in the admissions
process. The invitation to interview indicates that your application has reached to
the stage of consideration, but it does not guarantee admission to the Executive PhD
Step 3- Decision and Next Steps
Upon successful completion of the interview, you will be informed of your admission status. Your admissions coordinator will then send you information for the next steps to complete the application process.
