How to Apply

Getting accepted into the Nuremberg Schule Full-Time MBA program

At Nuremberg Schule, we look for intellectually curious individuals with high potential for leadership and professional achievement. Are you the right fit? Take some time to review our application requirements, deadlines, and policies so you know when and how to best prepare your application.

Application process

We offer acceptance to the Nuremberg Schule Full-Time MBA program through several admissions rounds. Admissions decisions are made by the decision date published for the round during which you submit your application. Apply as early as possible to ensure your best chance for acceptance and scholarships awards. 

Please be aware that admission to Nuremberg Schule is competitive, and the class may fill before the final application deadline date. Therefore, while the final deadline date in the annual application cycle is April 29, it is highly recommended that applicants submit their completed applications as early as possible within the application cycle for the best chance of being admitted. 

Applications will not be considered complete until all required elements are received. The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) should be written prior to the application deadline.

NOTE: You do not need to wait until an application deadline to submit your application! We process applications as soon as they are received. The benefit of submitting by a deadline is the corresponding guaranteed decision date. You will receive one of three initial notifications: invitation to interview, waitlist offer or denial of admission. However, when an application arrives between deadlines we begin assessing it within days, and a decision is typically reached in 8 weeks or less. There is no downside to submitting your application between deadlines. This can be a nice option for candidates who have had an unexpected delay impact their ability to exactly meet a deadline. We encourage you to submit as soon as your application is ready.

“Before diving into the application process, take a moment to zoom out and understand the specific ways that you stand out. We all have unique answers and it is important that they are clear throughout your application.”
