Two people discussing their application on the computer screen At the Telfer Executive MBA Program, we understand the investment you will make. Our objective is to ensure that you are making a well-informed decision that is right for you.

Interview with the Director

You will need to schedule an Interview with the Director as a part of your application process. The interview provides you with an avenue to personally discuss your eligibility as well as your personal and professional goals as they may relate to the Program. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the Program and to provide us with a more personal explanation of your professional background and personal motivation.  Many candidates accompany the interview with the Director with the opportunity to sit in on a Telfer Executive MBA class. Your interview, as well as your participation in the classroom, constitute a component of your research and validation of your investment into the Program.

Please prepare and submit a copy of your curriculum vitae the week before the interview.
