Admission

Driven, reflective, and forward-thinking, Carroll School students are astute leaders and leaders-to-be who come from a variety of backgrounds. Here, professionals with decades of experience share classrooms with students emerging from many of the best undergraduate programs.

What unites our students is a desire to make their mark on business and society—to improve individuals’ lives, organizations, and communities wherever they go. They benefit from small cohorts that encourage close connection with peers and offer uncommon access to field-leading faculty. Our programs feature dynamic academic experiences through which students acquire both foundational skills and advanced expertise.

If this sounds like a culture you would thrive in—and contribute to—then we encourage you to apply. We examine each application holistically, considering academic performance alongside extracurricular experience and the potential to have an enduring impact.
