    Procedures
    1. Apply. Access and complete the online application, which can be done over multiple sittings. Go to the Application Instructions page for details about the application components.
    2. Interview. Interviews will be extended by invitation after careful review of your application materials. We do not offer open interviews for MMS. Most interviews will occur via Skype; North Carolina residents may have the opportunity to interview on campus by invitation. Interviews are conducted in English and typically last 30-45 minutes. All interviews are conducted by an admissions officer, a select second-year MBA student, or an MMS alumnus who will ask you a variety of questions about your educational background and personal interests. At the conclusion of the interview, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the Fuqua experience. Appropriate attire for an interview is business casual.
    3. Receive your decision. You will be notified first on-line then via postal mail of your admission decision. If you are accepted to the program, you are required to submit your nonrefundable tuition deposit (2,000 USD, 14,000 RMB) and hard copies of your official transcripts by the deposit deadline to reserve your place in the class. 
    4. Access the Incoming Student Website (ISW). A few months before the start of the program, you will have access to the ISW, where you will find all the information you need to transition into your academic life at Fuqua for your US residency. The ISW provides program announcements, technical and computer information, assignments to prepare academically, and relocation information. This is your main resource to facilitate your transition into the MMS: DKU program, and it is important that you visit the site often for updates and guidance.
    5. Apply for your student visa (for non-US citizens without US permanent residency only). If applicable, visa application information will be included in your admission packet, along with specific deadlines for submission.

If you are currently in the US on a student visa for another program,please contact us prior to making plans to leave the United States in order to transfer your visa and ensure that the proper steps are taken to secure your new visa for the MMS: DKU program.
