General Admission Questions


What are the admissions requirements for the Dual MBA program?

For a full listing of admissions requirements, please visit the admissions section.


How do I apply for admission?

Applicants should first apply through our partner, EGADE Business School. To submit an application with EGADE, please click here.

A second application must be submitted to online at UNC Charlotte. For detailed information, please see our admission requirements.


What is the role of UNC Charlotte's partners in this process?

Each applicant MUST complete the application on his/her own, using his/her personal email address. This is to satisfy legal implications in the U.S. and allow the Office of Graduate Global Business Program the ability to communicate directly with you about the admissions process. Our partners will also receive regular updates regarding your status and can assist you with questions or clarifications.

If you have any questions about our global partners, please don't hesitate to contact the Graduate Global Business Program Manager at UNC Charlotte.


Are there any special requirements for bachelor's qualifications in other countries?

Colleges and Universities in the U.S. and some other countries note the degree obtained on the official transcript. Transcripts from many Asian universities and in some South American countries do not list the degree obtained on the official transcript. In this case, a copy must be made of the certificate or diploma in order to complete the process. In most cases, the certificate or diploma will need to be translated and certified.


How do I obtain a transcript from an American or Canadian institution?

An official transcript can typically be requested online at the student's institution. North American institutions normally send these out in a matter of days. We recommend that you request an official copy of your transcript as soon as possible. Once received, the transcript can be sent directly to Allison Brinkley in the Graduate School.


How can I check the status of my application?

Follow the status of your application online by logging back into your application using the same PIN and Password assigned to you when you first created your application account. If you do not remember your PIN and Password, simply click on "Forgot your PIN or Password?" located in the User Login box.


When is the application deadline?

Upcoming application deadlines are available here.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early.


Recommendations


What are some suggestions for choosing recommendations?

Choose people who can recommend you in a professional, educational or leadership capacity. Family and friends are not good choices; they will not be considered objective. The more your recommendation provider writes, the better the Graduate Coordinator can assess your potential to be successful in the program.


How will I know that my recommendations have been received by Graduate Admissions?

Return to your online application. Enter your PIN and password in the User Login box on the right side of the page. Scroll to "Recommendation Providers" where you will see the status of each recommendation.


How can I change one of my recommendation providers?

Once you have entered the name of a recommendation provider along with his/her correct email address, a request is immediately sent to that person even if you have not yet submitted your application. If you wish to add/delete a provider, or resend a request to someone whom you have already named, you should go to the "Recommendation Provider List" in your online application. You will see the providers that you originally entered, and you can use the add, delete, and resend buttons to perform those actions as needed. Note: if you originally indicated a provider would submit an off-line recommendation, you cannot send him/her a reminder using this method. You will need to contact him/her separately.
