An MBA Program Where You Don't Have to Put Your Career on Hold

Thank you for your interest in applying for the Executive MBA program.  Below are the instructions on how to apply and what supplemental items are required to complete your application.  If you have any questions, please email Chris Rials, Director of Graduate Admissions at

Application and Admissions Process:

Complete the Graduate application online. You won’t be able to save the application and return, so have all of your supplemental documents and names of recommenders ready.  Once all required materials are received, a Personal Interview is required for admission to the EMBA program.

Required Materials:

  • Professional Resume

  • Admissions Essay:  Please submit a two-page, double spaced essay on the topic, "What factors in your career have led you to consider an Executive MBA, and what do you hope to gain from a Millsaps Executive MBA?"  PDF format is preferred.

  • Two References:  Provide names and email addresses of two individuals to write recommendations on your behalf.  The application system will email each recommender on your behalf and will submit their letters directly to Millsaps College.  One reference must be a letter of support from a higher-level manager or executive within your current organization.  The second reference can be either a professional or academic reference who can speak to your ability to perform successfully in the Executive MBA program.

  • Official Transcripts:  Official academic transcripts from all previously attended undergraduate and graduate institutions should be sent directly to the Office of Graduate Admissions. It is preferred that transcripts are sent electronically to, but you can also mail them to:

                         Millsaps College
                         Else School of Management
