Your Application Advisor will work with you to ensure that your application is not only complete, but presents you and your qualifications in the best possible light.
We recognize that individual applicants often have unique strengths, and those strengths can be given special consideration in the admission decision.
The items we consider as part of our admissions procedure include:
- Your management experience
- Your references
- Your previous academic experience
- A personal interview may also be part of the admission process
Step One: Preliminary Assessment
Application Advisors will work with you through every step of the application process. Begin your preliminary assessment by completing the online application form and attaching a scanned copy of resume and your transcripts (if available).
An Application Advisor will review and contact you (normally within 2-3 business days) and suggest helpful ways to strengthen your file. To speak with an Application Advisor, call toll-free 1.888.EXEC MBA (1.888.393.2622).
Step Two: Complete your Application file
Your Application Advisor will ensure your completed file includes:

- Cover Letter: A cover letter outlining current responsibilities and assignments, career accomplishments, reasons for applying to Queen's Executive MBA, and professional and personal goals.
- Résumé: A current résumé that includes academic experience, work experience, memberships in professional associations, and volunteer and community activities.
