Application deadlines

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. The earlier you apply, the greater your chance to secure an entrance award.

Rotman-SDA Bocconi Global Executive MBA application deadlines

First deadline: January 20, 2021
Second deadline: May 26, 2021

Please note the Rotman School is migrating to a new customer database on August 3, 2021. If you have an application in progress, we encourage you to complete and submit it before July 27, 2021, so that we can safely migrate it to our new system. Between July 28 and August 2, 2021 we are unable to accept applications. Please return August 3, 2021 and we will welcome your application into our new system!

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis: the earlier you can submit a complete application, the better. 

Application notes:

  • While applications are accepted throughout the year, the program is highly competitive and may reach enrolment capacity before the final application deadline.
  • All complete applications are presented to the Admissions Committee on a weekly basis. A member of our admissions team will get back to you as soon as a decision on your application is made.
  • Test scores, transcripts and letters of reference may be added to your application after you've submitted it.
  • We encourage you to have your GMAT, GRE or EDT test completed, and your scores submitted, at least one week prior to the application deadline.
  • Test scores and all other supporting documents are required for an admission decision. Rotman does not make offers of acceptance conditional on test scores.
