Rotman-SDA Bocconi Global Executive MBA application deadlines

Application deadlines

The application deadlines for the GEMBA Class of 2026 starting in September 2024 are: 

Round 1: Monday, December 18th, 2023

Round 2: Monday, March 11th, 2024   

Round 3: Wednesday, June 5th, 2024 

We encourage international students to apply to earlier rounds in order to allow enough time for study permit applications.

Applications are still being accepted beyond the last posted deadline for Fall 2024. Please reach out to us for further information.

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis: the earlier you can submit a complete application, the better. 

Application notes:

  • While applications are accepted throughout the year, the program is highly competitive and may reach enrolment capacity before the final application deadline.
  • All complete applications are presented to the Admissions Committee on a weekly basis. A member of our admissions team will get back to you as soon as a decision on your application is made.
  • Test scores, transcripts and letters of reference may be added to your application after you've submitted it.
  • We encourage you to have your GMAT, GRE or EDT test completed, and your scores submitted, at least one week prior to the application deadline.
  • Test scores and all other supporting documents are required for an admission decision. Rotman does not make offers of acceptance conditional on test scores.
