- An undergraduate degree from an accredited university or foreign equivalent

We recommend all interested candidates submit a pre-application before applying. To submit a pre-application, send your current resume and unofficial academic transcript to email@example.com and specify the program of interest (EMBA HCA). The unofficial transcript helps us determine if you are eligible for the Admission Test in lieu of the GRE/GMAT. You will receive a response from our office within 3-4 business days of submitting your pre-application.
Please note that the pre-application will only confirm whether you meet the basic prerequisites for candidacy, it is not an indication of an admission decision.
Attend an Information Session
Next, plan to attend an information session to learn more about the program you are interested in. These sessions provide an overview of Zicklin Executive Programs, the program and curriculum, the application process, and the student experience. If you would like to sit in on a current class session, we can also arrange that for you after your pre-application has been processed.
Candidates generally move through the following steps during the application process:
- Submit an online application and all supporting application documents
- Once application is complete, qualified candidates are invited to campus for an admissions interview (virtual interviews are available for candidates outside of NYC metro area).
- Decisions are typically given within 1-3 weeks of interview.
The application requires you to submit the following items:
- $125 application fee

One should be from your current supervisor

Unofficial transcripts can be uploaded into the online application; official transcripts will be required if admitted
- Complete essay questions
