International MBA Applicants
Visa processing can take up to several months to complete, so it is in your best interest to apply in the Early Action Round, Round 1, or Round 2 if you require a visa.

Early Action Round

The Early Action Round is ideal if you have decided that the Daytime MBA is the best program for you.

  • Applicants commit to a binding agreement to attend Fuqua if admitted.
  • Any applications submitted to other schools must be withdrawn upon an offer of admission from Fuqua.
  • Scholarships are awarded according to the same guidelines in the Early Action Round as they are offered in Rounds 1 and 2; however, due to the binding nature of the Early Action Round you are required to attend with or without a scholarship award.
  • Regardless of your citizenship, all Early Action applicants residing in the U.S. (except on the West Coast) are required to travel to Durham to interview during the Open Interview Period.
    • If you live on the West Coast or outside of the U.S., you may interview in Durham during the Open Interview Period, but it is not a requirement. If you do not travel to Durham during the Open Interview period, you must await an invitation to interview at a location closer to you.

  2. What are your long-term goals?

When a new person joins the Admissions team, we ask that person to share with everyone in the office a list of “25 Random Things About Yourself.” As an Admissions team, we already know the new hire’s professional and academic background, so learning these “25 Random Things” helps us get to know someone’s personality, background, special talents, and more.In this spirit, the Admissions Committee also wants to get to know you–beyond the professional and academic achievements listed in your resume and transcript. You can share with us important life experiences, your likes/dislikes, hobbies, achievements, fun facts, or anything that helps us understand what makes you who you are.

At the end of your 2 years at Fuqua, if you were to receive an award for exemplifying one of the 6 Principles listed below, which one would it be and why? Your response should reflect your knowledge of Fuqua and the Daytime MBA program and experience, and the types of activities and leadership you would engage in as a Fuqua student.

学部長のインタビュー(Duke Univ., Fuqua School)

以下、Duke, Fuqua School学部長のインタビュー記事が掲載されています。
クラス編成とダイバーシティー、リーダーシップ教育、チームワークといったトピックについてコメントされています。スクールの全体像や教育方針を把握する上で、組織の長でもある学部長の発言やコメントにも注目していきましょう。
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/opinion/interviews/b-schools-need-to-build-trusted-leaders-bill-boulding/articleshow/46994910.cms

<以下、注目点をインタビュー記事より抜粋しました>
About 40-45% of our students are not from the US. We think it’s really important to be a global business school because we’re completely interdependent and it will be better if we recognise that we need to work with people who are different from us.

Leaders should be able to bring about collective diversity which starts with the assumption that we’re stronger because we’re together and we’re different. When people believe you care about them something amazing happens. Then they do have a sense of shared identity. They feel valued and welcome. Supportive ambition is really important.

Our emphasis is on making sure that in our curriculum we not only give people a sense of economic institutions and the way people conduct business but also behaviors that exist in different parts of the world. It’s important to create, practical global first hand experiences for our students, and you need to be someone who can embrace differences.

One of our great advantage is that we’re so fundamentally interdisciplinary. The emphasis is on fostering team spirit, and we have this thing called team Fuqua, which is an important part of our MBA experience.

Has there been an increasing focus on markets like India for US business schools with the growing popularity of GMAC here? We have about 30 students in every class from India. We have students groups and regional teams trying to build relationships with industry and government leaders who will help us better understand what are the pressing issues in India. We have more than 425 students in every class each ..
