The Wharton MBA Program for Executives seeks a diverse and well-rounded class.  As such, we do not release decisions on a rolling basis; rather, we evaluate each round of applicants as a whole. Please see application timelines and deadlines summarized above.

We encourage you to read our website to learn more about the program and to sign-up for an upcoming event. Perusing WEMBA stories is another great way to discover how the program has impacted our students and alumni.  If you have done your homework and have specific questions about your candidacy, you may schedule a phone chat with a member of our admissions team.

Submitting Your Application


You may begin your online application at any time during the admissions process, and you can continue to edit and add to your information before you submit the completed application. You have until 11:59 p.m. on the day of the deadline to complete your online application (ET for Philadelphia and Global applicants and PT for San Francisco applicants).


Interviews are by invitation only. If selected for an interview, we will contact you to arrange the interview as part of the application process. The interview is a chance for us to ask specific questions about your candidacy and for you to provide a more personal explanation about your professional background and interests.

Interviews will be conducted virtually. 

Admissions Decisions

Admissions decisions are announced online; you can view the decision by logging into your online application account after 5:00 p.m. ET (Philadelphia and Global applicants) and 5:00 p.m. PT (San Francisco applicants) on the decision release date.
