2022-2023 MBA Application Deadlines + Decision Release Dates

MBA application deadlines for Round 1, Round 2 and Round 3 of the 2022-2023 admissions cycle are listed below (with extra information about early decision and Round 4 / Round 5 deadlines at schools that offer them).

Where deadlines are not yet available, we have inserted a dash (-); we encourage you to check back soon for updated deadlines.

Please note: application dates sometimes change throughout the MBA admissions cycle. Although we do our best to keep our information up-to-date, please see the business schools’ websites for confirmation.

Applying in a future year?

Application deadlines don’t change much from year to year, so if you are planning to apply for an MBA in a future year, you can still reference this data. The application deadlines next year for a given MBA program are very likely to be similar to the ones this year for that same MBA program.

Other MBA Application Deadlines for US Business Schools

Early Decision Deadlines

Columbia’s “Round 1” date listed above is considered “Early Decision” and is for August-entry applicants only. Candidates applying in this round indicate Columbia is their first choice, and must pay a nonrefundable $6,000 tuition deposit. 

Similarly, UNC Kenan Flager’s Round 1 date is treated as “Early Action” meaning applicants are committed to enrolling at the school upon acceptance and must pay a $3,000 deposit.

Early Action Deadlines

In addition to a traditional Round 1 deadline, the following schools have an “Early Action” deadline:
