After you submit your application to Kellogg:

1. The admissions committee will evaluate your candidacy for the program.
The committee will review your work experience, academic history, recommendations, company sponsorship, interview and the application itself. Most importantly, however, is your work experience, including work history and current role and responsibilities. Applicants typically have at least eight years of work experience and are employed full-time.

2. We will notify you of the admissions decision.
Your application will be reviewed after we receive your complete application, including supporting materials, letters of recommendation, sponsorship letter and transcripts, and your interview has taken place. Once this is complete, our admissions committee renders decisions on a rolling basis, typically within 4-6 weeks of application and interview completion.

Note: If you’ve been admitted to another program and require a quicker response from Kellogg, please contact the Executive MBA Admissions team at emba-admissions@kellogg.northwestern.edu. We will ask you to scan and email a copy of your admissions letter from the program you have been admitted to and we will reply with an estimated timeline of your application review.
