Experience and Education
Applicants should have at least 15 years of management experience, with at least 7 at the senior management or executive level. Applicants should hold an MBA or other relevant, business-focused Master’s degree. Exceptional applicants with a Bachelor’s degree, but with substantial managerial experience, will also be considered.

Applicants should submit transcripts from all previously attended institutions of higher education as well as a current resume that highlights their professional experience and education.
Letters of Recommendation
In addition, all applicants should submit two letters of recommendation that attest to the their demonstrated leadership, academic potential and ability to think critically.
Applicants must also submit two essays. The first essay should address the applicant’s goals and motivations for pursuing the Executive DBA degree, as well as detail his or her general areas of research interest. The second essay should describe the applicant’s plans to balance the time commitment required of the program (about 15 hours per week) with their work schedule and other demands.
Standardized Test Scores
Because of the nature of the Executive DBA and the level of experience required of applicants, the GMAT or GRE is not required. Applicants may submit standardized test scores if they choose.
Interviews with the program directors are required of all applicants. Interviews may occur in person or through video conference. On-site interviews are strongly recommended so that applicants can visit Temple University and The Fox School to tour the facilities and meet the Executive DBA faculty.
The total cost of the program is $124,200 for the Fall 2014 cohort. This includes books, lodging and most meals during the required residencies. Students are responsible for travel to and from the on-campus residences.
Admission decisions will be made on a rolling basis throughout the year. The deadline for application to the program is June 30. However, students are highly encouraged to apply early, as the size of each cohort is limited. Once the cohort is full, no additional students will be accepted into the program for the current year. Students who are not accepted in a given year may reapply in future years.
Admissions decisions will be made within 30 days of the student’s received application and completed interview. Upon notification of acceptance into the program, a student will have 30 days to enroll and remit their security deposit in order to hold their place in the cohort.
The application fee is $100. The fee is non-refundable.
