MMPA candidates are selected from a broad range of academic backgrounds. Although the program is designed primarily for students from non-business undergraduate and graduate degrees, it is possible for students with four-year undergraduate or graduate business degrees to apply for advanced standing. The program begins in May of each year.

The admission standards have been set to ensure that applicants have a reasonable expectation of successfully completing the program.

The application process is streamlined and continuously monitored in an effort to minimize delays in providing applicants with an admission decision.

The MMPA application process has been revised to a digital format. The online application system may be accessed from the link on the Application page.
