MBA Application Process

In order to expedite the process, applicants are required to apply online. Please review the following detailed application instructions carefully before completing the application.

Currently our application system requires you to complete two separate forms. One application is specific to the Oregon MBA (Oregon MBA Departmental Application) and the other is the University of Oregon's Graduate Admissions form.

In order to review your application, it must be complete. An application is not considered complete until all of the materials listed below have been received. You will receive an email confirmation from our office once your application is complete.

Admission notification is typically 30-45 days AFTER your application is completed. If you are offered admission, you will receive an offer reply form along with your admission letter, allowing you to accept, deny, or defer the admission offer.

A completed application consists of:

  1. Oregon MBA Departmental Application

    The departmental application provides additional information that is needed to complete your application for the Lundquist College of Business Oregon MBA program.

    Fall 2023 MBA Application

  2. UO Graduate Admission Application and non-refundable $70.00 (U.S. applicants) or $90.00 (international applicants) application fee

    UO Graduate Admission Application

    The UO Graduate application requires a different login and password from the departmental application.

    The "major" to select is: Business, MBA

    Applicants will be required to pay the non-refundable application fee at the time the UO Graduate Admission Online Application is submitted. If you decide to apply to a different year or start term that is outside of the current academic year, you will need to create a new username and pay the non-refundable application fee again.

    After you register your recommenders online via the departmental application, your recommenders will automatically receive an email invitation from the application system. The email will include instructions on how to submit a recommendation on your behalf.

    You can submit your departmental application BEFORE your recommendations have been received.

    All applicants are required to take the GMAT or GRE exam**, as we do not offer conditional admission. In the case of multiple GMAT or GRE scores, we consider the highest overall score. As long as you include copies of your GMAT or GRE score reports in your departmental application, you may hold off on submitting the official scores until after the admissions decision.

    ** GMAT/GRE may be waived for qualified applicants. Fill out the Waiver Request/Eligibility form or email for more information.

    GMAT and GRE scores are valid only for five years after the test date. We must receive the official score report before the test expires.

  8. Language Competency

    Applicants whose native language is not English must fulfill additional language proficiency requirements. ("Native language" is defined as the language you spoke at home since birth AND the language you spoke and wrote as your primary language in school beginning at age five and continuing through the rest of your education.)
