If you have submitted an application to a Berkeley MBA program within the last two years, you are considered a reapplicant. If your application was incomplete or withdrawn, you are not considered a reapplicant.
Reapplicants are required to complete and submit all portions of the online application, including an additional reapplicant essay, unless otherwise specified below.
Please use the same email address you used in your previous application when creating your new application.
You do not need to respond to Essay #1. Instead, please answer the Haas Reapplicant Essay and Essay #2.
Haas Reapplicant Essay:
Please submit a statement explaining how you have improved your candidacy since your last application to the MBA for Executives Program. If you have previously applied to one of our other Berkeley MBA Programs, please help us understand why you are now interested in attending the MBA for Executives Program. (350 word limit)
As a working professional, you have developed unique skills, knowledge, or experience in your career. Please summarize your primary area of professional expertise or knowledge. Highlight any aspect(s) that makes you unique or sets you apart from your peers. (150 word limit)
You will need to include one new or updated letter of recommendation. In Recommender 1 box, you will provide your additional recommender information.
To complete this section, you will need to input information for Recommender 2, regardless of whether you are submitting a second reference. Please follow these steps for Recommender 2 if you are only submitting one new letter of recommendation:
If your previous application’s exams are still valid, we do not require you to reorder official score reports unless you are submitting new test results. If you would like to submit new test scores, please submit an official score report to the MBA for Executives Admissions office using the following codes:
For the TOEFL or IELTS, you must submit new scores if your test was taken before June 1, 2020. If your GMAT, GRE, or EA exam predates the October 2016 cutoff, you will be required to take the test again.
If you have retaken the GMAT, GRE, EA or TOEFL, ask the Educational Testing Service to forward the new official scores to the MBA for Executives Program using the codes above. You will also need to log on to your online application and self-report your new score in the Test Score section.
You will need to submit transcripts for any new coursework completed since your prior application.
You will not need to re-submit any official transcripts previously submitted. If you only submitted unofficial transcripts, you will need to submit official transcripts from every college/university/ graduate institution you have attended since secondary/high school graduation toward the issuance of a degree.
