Admissions and Fees

In the Executive Development Program, you can build knowledge and develop leadership skills without needing to fulfill typical graduate degree requirements. The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is not required to apply. A college degree is also not required – work performance, scope of responsibility and leadership potential are more important considerations in the application process.

Is the Executive Development Program right for you?

The Executive Development Program is ideal for mid-to-senior level professionals with at least seven years of professional experience or increasing levels of responsibility throughout their career, whether in managing larger teams or taking on more complex projects. Those who benefit most from the program usually have experience with large-scale projects and enterprise-wide scope. If you have fewer than seven years of experience, please consider attending the Business Management Certificate Program as an alternative.

Please contact us at 206-543-8560 or [email protected] with any questions.

Applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early to take advantage of the early admissions discount. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. To complete your application, you will provide:

  • Resume
  • Personal Statement addressing your interest in applying (100-300 words)
  • A description of your current position, including managerial experience, with direct reports or on larger scale projects. Can be a company-provided role description or a 50-250 word description.
