Upcoming MBA Application Deadlines for Spring 2016

A list of deadlines for over 30 MBA programs starting between January and May, 2016

Below is a list of upcoming application deadlines for MBA programs beginning in the spring of 2016. The business schools listed below all have international accreditation and were selected based on the most-viewed university profiles on FIND MBA and other top programs.

Although many MBA programs begin in the fall, a number of business schools in all parts of the world offer MBA programs with spring intakes. These tend to be most common in mainland Europe, although there are some in other regions of the world as well. Sometimes, business schools will offer a spring start in addition to a fall start. For other schools, as is the case of Columbia Business School, a spring intake will be offered for students who need a shorter, more focused program.

Sometimes, MBA admissions are broken up into "rounds," each with a unique deadline. Although some round 1 deadlines have already passed, others are still on the horizon. Other schools offer rolling admissions, where applications are reviewed as they are received. Still other business schools have not yet announced their spring MBA intake deadlines, and this list will be updated as these become available.

Even though the deadlines are quickly approaching, and there is still time for prospective applicants to take the GMAT, write admissions essays, and look for scholarships and other funding.
