A new year is upon us, and we at mbaMission are proud to announce our first new publication of the year: the HBS 2+2 and Deferred Admissions Primer!
In deferred admissions programs, undergraduate students can be accepted to an MBA program during their last year of studies and enroll after gaining a pre-determined amount of work experience. These programs have increasingly attracted interest following the 2008 launch of the 2+2 Program at Harvard Business School—one of the first top business schools to do so. Since then, several other high-ranking schools have launched similar programs, and many more have expressed an interest in creating one in the future.
Because the idea of applying to an MBA program while still pursuing an undergraduate degree is fairly new, many candidates have questions regarding such basics as who is eligible to apply, which schools offer these programs, and what the programs entail. Our new HBS 2+2 and Deferred Admissions Primer answers all of these questions and many more, in addition to providing insight regarding the interview process and what kinds of applicants have been successful in the past as well as quotes from former students.
