We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2024 cohort. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. All EMBA program applicants will receive an admission decision within two weeks of submitting their completed application.
Complete the online application and pay the $100 application fee.
Applications ask for basic biographical and educational data. They also contain short questions. These questions are your opportunity to highlight qualities that are relevant to success in a graduate business program but may not be reflected in test scores and past academic records. It is important to answer all questions thoroughly and thoughtfully, as the application is your means of informing us about yourself.
Once your application is received, it will be reviewed and you will be contacted if you are chosen for a personal interview. Please note that you do not have to fully complete the application in order to start the process. To be considered for a personal interview, simply fill out the biographical information, upload your resume, and click submit. You will be able to add transcripts and remaining required documents after clicking submit.
The EMBA admissions committee understands there are many ways an applicant can demonstrate their readiness for graduate study. Consequently, applications are reviewed through a holistic lens. A GMAT or a GRE score is not required, though if you feel the inclusion of a score would strengthen your application by demonstrating your preparation for graduate work, you are welcome to provide one. If you have questions, contact Chris Hilario.
The GMAT test code is QCK-ZW-44.
One official copy of the transcript of all college work is required from each institution previously attended. We will accept official transcripts electronically as long as they are sent by the institution directly to [email protected]. Please note that you can submit the EMBA application with unofficial copies that you upload. However, you will be required to submit official copies prior to a final admission decision being rendered.
If your institution doesn’t send transcripts electronically, each transcript must be mailed in an envelope from the institution closed with the institution’s official seal. Transcripts should be forwarded to:
GSU Buckhead Center
Tower Place 200
3348 Peachtree Rd. NE, Ste. 500
Atlanta, GA 30326
Attn: Chris Hilario
We require three responses as part of our application. These statements allow you to present yourself to the admissions committee and should highlight qualities relevant to your success in our program. Each response should be no more than 400 words. See below for the responses.
- What is your long term career goal and how will an EMBA degree help you reach that goal?
- Why have you chosen to apply to the Robinson Executive MBA program instead of (or in addition to) other EMBA programs?
- List 10 facts about yourself that you would want your classmates to know about you. (This does not need to be in essay format. Simply list the facts 1 through 10).
All applicants must submit an updated resume. Your resume should clearly highlight promotions at your place(s) of employment since receiving your bachelor’s degree.
A personal interview is required of all EMBA applicants. Once the EMBA application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the admissions committee. If an applicant is selected for a personal interview, a representative from the EMBA office will reach out to set up a date and time. Currently, all interviews are being scheduled via Zoom.
We require one letter of recommendation as part of your application. While not required, we strongly encourage that you reference be your current supervisor. If you feel that an additional reference will help improve your candidacy, then have your recommender contact Ian Schonberg at [email protected]
