2018 - 2019 Application Deadlines Released

by Jade Anthony Thursday, August 2, 2018

The Wisconsin MBA Admissions Team has recently released the application deadlines for the upcoming admissions cycle. While the first deadline is still some time away, it’s important to begin thinking about your candidacy for business school and identifying when you’re best prepared to submit your application.

New this year is the final application deadline for domestic candidates on June 1, 2019. This was implemented to give candidates a clear-cut time frame for which they can complete their application materials. This replaces the rolling admission deadline of the past admissions cycle.
