Early Decision

The Early Decision Round is designed for applicants who have completed their research about MBA programs and have decided that Notre Dame is the school that fits their needs best.

Early Decision provides applicants with the certainty of learning their decisions (admit or deny) before the end of October. 

Early Decision candidates who are offered admission will have up to thirty (30) days to arrange their one-time, non-refundable deposit of $6,000 and will be expected to remove their applications from all other schools and refuse any future offers of admission from other schools. Applicants who are not prepared for this level of commitment are encouraged to apply in later rounds.

Round 1 Deadline

Special Note: Fellowships are typically available throughout the admissions cycle, however, they are more plentiful during the early application rounds.  To learn more about our fellowship opportunities, please visit our fellowship information page.

Fellowship availability will be greatest for this round.

Applicants who submit a completed application by November 4, 2013 will have an admission decision by December 20, 2013. Round 1 applicants that are accepted will be required to submit two, non-refundable deposits of $1,000 in order to secure their seat in the incoming class.

Round 2 Deadline

International applications will be accepted after this deadline, however, it is recommended that international candidates apply no later than this round to ensure adequate time for application review, fellowship consideration, visa processing, and relocation.

Please remember that fellowships are still available during this round. To learn more about our fellowship opportunities, please visit our fellowship information page.

Applicants who submit a completed application by January 6, 2014 will have an admission decision by February 28, 2014. Round 2 applicants that are accepted will be required to submit two, non-refundable deposits of $1,000 in order to secure their seat in the incoming class.

Round 3 Deadline

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis for this deadline with all decisions released by April 25, 2014 for completed files.   

Fellowships are typically still available at this point in the cycle, however notification of fellowship awards may be delayed. To learn more about our fellowship opportunities, please visit our fellowship information page.

Applicants admitted during this round will have 60 days from the date of admission, or until May 9, 2014 (whichever comes first) to submit two, non-refundable deposits of $1,000.
