One of the elements of our application process that candidates (and the Admissions team!) enjoy most is the fast-track Admissions Days that we run throughout the year.

Here’s our guide to what to expect and how to make the most of the experience.

What is an Admissions Day?

Admissions Days are full-day virtual events for candidates who have applied for the next part-time MBA intake – whether that’s for the:

At the next Admissions Day, you’ll join us for a welcome presentation from the Programme Director, a member of Imperial College Business School Careers and a taster lecture. You will hear more about our MBA programme and have an interview with one of our selectors. Throughout the day, you’ll have the opportunity to network with current students and alumni of our MBA programmes.

The day is a perfect taster into the atmosphere and ethos of Imperial College Business School, as well as helping you to accelerate your MBA application. 

What are we looking for from the interview?

Just like the online interviews in our regular admissions rounds, we’re assessing your readiness and suitability for an MBA at Imperial through questions about your previous experience, motivations and future aspirations. For more guidance on how to prepare for your interview – check out this blog post! 

Admissions Days are aimed at candidates who have made an application – if you’re still in the research stage, one of our regular information sessions or webinars would be a great first step.

What are the benefits of attending an Admissions Day?

Many students on our MBA programmes join us via an Admissions Day. Current students, Hal and Angie, share their reflections on the benefits of attending.

“Life doesn’t always work according to the cycle of admissions deadlines. In addition to being a centre of academic excellence, Imperial isn’t afraid to be innovative in how it operates. The accelerated application day allowed me to meet other students, world-class researchers and alumni and start my MBA journey 12 months earlier than I otherwise could have done.” Hal Sherrington, MBA 2019-20

“The Admissions Day was a fast way for me to get into the Weekend MBA at Imperial College Business School. I remember I experienced an interesting lecture on international business management and met some prospective Weekend MBA candidates who are now in my cohort. Most importantly, I received an offer for the programme the day after. It might sound strange, but I did enjoy the interview process very much, talking to the Admissions Director was more like a nice discussion rather than a stressful interview.” Angie Lee, Weekend MBA 2019-20
