An increasing number of MBA programs offer current undergraduate students the opportunity to gain a head start on the MBA application process. Deferral MBA programs allow ambitious students to secure a seat in a prestigious MBA program before entering the workforce. For those students who are certain about their MBA goals, studying for the GMAT/GRE and completing the MBA applications while in school can be a compelling proposition.

Keep in mind, however, with small classes/cohorts, it is even more crucial that candidates distinguish themselves. Our clients who are successful every year demonstrate considerable leadership and articulate clear and ambitious goals. If you are confident in your abilities and aspirations to become a business leader, a deferral MBA program may be a great option for you!

Harvard Business School’s 2+2 is one of the most well-known MBA deferral programs, however, many top business schools have their own offerings including Columbia Business School, Yale SOM, Stanford GSB and UVA Darden.

Below is a detailed summary of programs offered, application deadlines and decision dates to keep you on track!
