NEW! Candidates Must Submit An Official a GMAT or GRE Score With Their Submitted Application
We now require applicants who are applying to the MBAP programs to submit an official GMAT or GRE score with their application. Applicants who do not have an official score, will not be reviewed. The final deadline date to submit applications is January 5th, 2022

Applicants who submit a completed application will receive a final admissions decision within approximately 6-8 weeks of application.

No candidate will be officially admitted to MBA Prep without an official GMAT or GRE score. Applicants who proceed to the “Final Review” and who are determined eligible for admission will not be formally admitted until their official score is received. 

Please note: Applications submitted without an official score may receive a final decision based on the materials submitted. All decisions are final, and are not open to reconsideration based on additional information, including but not limited to an official GMAT or GRE score submitted after the deadline. 

Applicants who apply with an official GMAT or GRE score will receive a final admissions decision within approximately 6-8 weeks of application.

We take a holistic approach to reviewing candidates for MLT’s MBA Prep Program. We evaluate your entire application package, as a business school would do. You may be invited to participate in a virtual interview after you submit your application.

Decision Timeline

Admission decisions will be delivered six to eight weeks after the deadline for each application round. A more detailed timeline will be released at a later date.

Program Costs

At MLT, we’re invested in you. We commit significant time and resources to each MBA Prep Fellow. If accepted into MBA Prep, we expect you to make a similar commitment to MLT and your future.
