How to Apply

Attendance at The Duke MBA Pride Weekend is by invitation only. To be considered for an invitation to the Weekend, all prospective applicants will need to complete our brief online questionnaire. The questionnaire should take approximately one hour or less to complete. It includes sections for 1) biographical information, 2) educational background, 3) work background, 4) a short essay on your post-MBA goals (300 word limit), and 5) resume submission (Note: The questionnaire cannot be started and saved for a later time, though you will be able to review and make changes to your responses before you submit). The deadline for submitting your questionnaire is November 1, 2021. If you missed the questionnaire deadline, please contact Meghan Pollard, Program Director of Admissions & Campus Events, directly to check availability.

Once all questionnaires have been received, they will be reviewed by members of The Duke MBA Pride Weekend Committee.  Decisions regarding Weekend invitations have no bearing on admissions decisions for individuals applying, or planning to apply, to The Duke MBA.  Invitations to the Weekend will be sent via email in early November.

Our goal is to bring the MBA experience to as many qualified prospective students as we can.
