You will need to create an online application that you will use throughout the process. You do not need to complete the application all at once as you will be able to save as you go.
An unofficial transcript from each institution of higher education you have attended, regardless of length of attendance, must be submitted with your application. Upon acceptance, you must request official transcripts to be sent to the following address:
University of Utah
Office of Admissions, Graduate Admissions Division

Essay - Statement of Purpose
A one page, single-spaced statement of purpose essay is required. The prompt can be found in the application. An additional essay is recommended for those with undergraduate GPAs below 3.0.
A current resume is required. We encourage you to highlight your career progression and major achievements of both your professional and academic history.
Letter of Recommendation
Submit a nomination form and letter of recommendation from your direct supervisor. The letter must acknowledge the time requirement and your employer’s willingness to support you in completing the program requirements. In addition, the letter should also address your strengths, weaknesses, personal character, and potential for success in the Executive MBA program. These items also can be completed through the recommendation section of the online application or emailed directly to EMBA@Utah.edu.
GMAT / GRE Waiver
The GMAT/GRE exam is waived in most cases. Please see our GMAT/GRE section for further details on determining eligibility. A standardized exam may be required in some instances. You do not need to take the GMAT/GRE exam to apply.
Once your application is received, you will be contacted to schedule an interview. The interview helps assess your skills and motivation and allows for additional character insight as part of the admissions process.
