We evaluate each application portfolio and make decisions based on past academic performance, recommendations, work experience, and a personal statement. Because the cohort model of this program requires significant group work, we also look for evidence of effective participation in team environments. Requirements for admission are outlined below.

The LEMBA program provided me with the foundation and the tools to be more effective in operations. It gave me the underpinnings to evaluate and help further develop our strategy as well as the leadership piece to carry that through the organization.
