Build your case for support

As you work on your application and discuss your development plans with your employer, be sure to read our advice on creating a business case. This document will help you build a case for your employer’s support, either financial or time away from the office.  You can also research by attending events on campus and talking to students about their own and their family’s experience.

Application checklist

To be considered for an interview you should provide: 

Required tests

Executive Assessment / GMAT / GRE

We accept GMAT and GRE. We also accept the Executive Assessment, a new way of assessing candidates’ readiness to study.  The EA has been developed for time sensitive executives, is shorter in duration and requires only modest preparation.

There are no minimum scores but we recommend appropriate preparation. You should supply a self-reported score in the application and a verified score if selected for interview.

Please arrange for your score to be sent directly to the School managing your application:

Test takers will also be able to nominate the school and programme to receive scores at the time of the test, so you do not have to remember these codes.

required documents

English language certificate

If your native language is not English and you have not obtained a degree from an institution where English was the language of instruction, you are required to submit official evidence of your English language proficiency.

There are three standardised tests you may take:

Official academic transcripts

You are required to submit academic transcripts from your undergraduate or graduate educational institutions, with certified translated copies if they are not in English.

proof of support

Signed statement of employer support

Proof of support from you employer for the time you will be out of the office is required to apply to the programme. You must provide a signed letter from an authorised person within your company stating that they agree to allow you the required time away from the office to complete the programme. The authorised person may be your department head, president, chief executive officer or head of HR.

Many EMBA-Global students are also financially sponsored by their employers – either fully or partially. If you are financially sponsored to any extent, you must submit complete information on the terms of this financial support, signed by the authorised person within your company.

If you are self-employed, you must submit a letter stating that you understand the time commitment needed away from work to successfully complete the programme. You may also be required to provide evidence of your current engagements/contracts.
