The Bridge MBA Program is a one year, accelerated graduate program. It is four quarters in length and a new cohort begins each year in Fall quarter (September).

Application Deadlines

  • Round 1* - Early Application: March 1 (priority review)
  • Round 2*: May 1

Applications submitted for Round 1 are given first consideration for early admission to the cohort. Applications must be complete with all supplemental materials received by the deadline to ensure timely decisions. Applications will be received and reviewed on a rolling, space-available basis.
