You're ready for the next level. And we're ready to help you get there. Here's everything you need to know about applying to our master's in executive leadership program.
We make admission decisions on a rolling basis, but we encourage you to apply early since space is limited.
How to apply:
First, you'll want to start your application online.
To complete your application, we'll need the following documents and information.
- Professional resume.
- Self-evaluation essay.
- Two letters of recommendation (recommended from two of the following: supervisor, colleague or direct report).
- $80 application fee.
- Official copies of all college transcripts. These should be mailed in sealed envelopes from the institutions to:
University of San Diego
Office of Graduate Admissions
Attn: Miguel Carrillo
5998 Alcala Park
San Diego, CA 92110
- GMAT score from the last five years or a Professional Product (described below)
Professional product: Here's a unique perk our program has to offer. Instead of the GMAT, you can submit a professional product that demonstrates your ability to analyze complex problems at the graduate level. Ideally, the product should be one in which you were the dominant author. Content contributions from all others should be less than 20 percent of the total effort. Some examples include, but are not limited to: a technical report, a strategic business plan, a financial analysis, an investment analysis or a new project or business proposal. Please note that the professional product will need to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you attended an international school, we have some additional requirements for you:
Foreign academic records
As a prospective student, your official records from foreign institutions must be sent directly to the Office of Graduate Admissions. We require that you submit official records from each institution you attended after secondary school. Plus, all documents must bear the seal and title of the authorizing official and must be in a sealed envelope.
Transcripts issued in English by the academic institution are preferred. Otherwise, all transcripts that are not issued in English must be accompanied by a certified English translation from an approved agency. If you're an international applicant, we require you to have your transcripts evaluated by the International Education Research Foundation (IERF) or World Education Services (WES). You will need to submit a Transcript Evaluation Report. Contact IERF at PO Box 3665, Culver City, CA 90231-3665, (310) 258-9451 or email@example.com or WES, PO Box 26879, San Francisco, CA 94126, (415) 677-9378 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
