Student Learning Outcomes

APPLYING TO THE MBT PROGRAM

Thank you for considering Leventhal as a place to pursue your graduate accounting education. We seek to recruit a class with diverse backgrounds and experiences bringing different perspectives into class discussions and group projects. We have a holistic approach to our admissions process and look at every component of an applicants file. There is not one particular thing we are looking for. Through the admissions process we want to get to know "You", your story, and what makes you unique. We look forward to getting to know you throughout the process.

  • DATES + DEADLINES

    Domestic Applicants: Deadline for Summer Start - March 31

    Deadline for Fall Start - April 15

    International Applicants: Final Deadline - January 15

    ** We will continue to accept and review applications after the deadline on a space-available basis. Please keep deadlines in mind when scheduling your tests (GMAT, TOEFL, etc.) or mailing transcripts as it often takes some time for these items to reach our office. We highly recommend attaching official transcripts to your application before submitting in order to speed the review process.

    Leventhal Ambassadors are current MAcc and MBT students who are here to answer any questions you might have.

You can ask questions about anything, but most commonly our ambassadors receive questions about:
