Chicago Booth Scholars Program: Deferred MBA

Updated: Mar 31, 2023

Has MBA always been a dream for you ever since you started your undergraduate degree?

This Chicago Booth Scholars Program is here for you!


This program gives you the opportunity to secure an admission into the MBA course before even graduating from college! You can apply to this program in the final year of under graduation. Next, you defer your MBA for 2-5 years while you gain professional work experience. Thanks to this program, you need not already have the much required work experience to get admitted for MBA. Isn’t it unbelievable!

Why should you choose this program?

1. It gives you a security that you already have a school waiting to accept you for MBA.

2. Moreover, it provides the option to pursue any of the two- Full-Time MBA or Part-Time MBA.

3. It gives you the freedom to explore career paths after college. You can focus on finding your journey rather than worrying about business school admissions.

4. As soon as you are admitted, you will be able to access the incredible network of students and alumni through events, seminars, programs, etc.

5. You will be automatically considered for scholarships and other financial aid.

6. The application fee of USD 250 is waived for candidates of this program.

Eligibility criteria

· The applicant must be in the final year of bachelor’s degree,


· The applicant must be in the final year of joint master’s and bachelor’s degree.

Moreover, candidates with exceptional skills, good academic scores and a desire to improve are given preference over the others.

Requirements for applying

1. Academic transcripts from all postsecondary educational institutes the candidate has attended.

2. Short answer question and essay- this is the most important part of the entire application. The Admission Committee makes the final decision based on them.

3. Current resume enlisting all the academic achievements and internships.

4. 2 letters of recommendation- one of these should be from a current supervisor who knows the candidate well. The second one is required from a professional contact from whom the candidate has worked in the past.

5. GMAT/GRE scores (we recommend a GMAT score of between 640-780).

6. In the case of international students, a score of English proficiency tests is required. They consider TOEFL/IELTS/PTE scores. This is not a requirement for those international students who have got their undergraduate degree from an institution in which English is the language of teaching. This is also not a requirement for those international students who are permanent citizens of a country where English is the official language.

Application Process

1. The first step of applying to the Chicago Booth Scholars Program is filling the online application form.

2. After the evaluation of your application, you might be invited for an in-person interview.

3. If you are selected after the interview, you will be provisionally admitted to the Full-Time MBA program with granted 2-5 years of deferment.

If you wish to continue working after your deferment, you might enrol in the Evening MBA program or the Weekend MBA program.
