After you submit your application to Kellogg:

1. The admissions committee will evaluate your candidacy for the program.
The committee will look at your work experience, academic history, recommendations, company sponsorship, interview and the application itself. Most important, however, is your work experience, including work history and current role and responsibilities. (We require that you have at least 8-10 years of work experience.)

2. We will notify you of the admissions decision via regular mail.
Decisions are sent on a rolling basis. Typically, you will hear from us approximately 30+ days after we receive your complete application and supporting materials. Note: If you’ve been admitted to another program and require a faster response from Kellogg, contact the Executive MBA Admissions team at We will ask you to fax (or scan and email) a copy of your acceptance letter and we will reply giving you an estimated time when your application review can be completed.
