HBS 2+2 and Deferred Admissions Guide
Updated for 2020-2021!
mbaMission’s The HBS 2+2 and Deferred Admissions Guide delves deep into the world of deferred admissions programs, including the spearheading Harvard Business School (HBS) 2+2 Program, which was launched in 2008. A deferred MBA program may be ideal for those looking to gain full-time work experience between their undergraduate studies and business school.
HBS developed the 2+2 Program to give current college seniors (or students who went directly from their undergraduate studies to graduate school) the opportunity to apply for deferred admission. This program allows students to gain years of pre-MBA work experience that will help prepare them for the rigor of business school in a way their undergraduate degree may not have done. Other deferred programs work in a similar fashion.
The mbaMission HBS 2+2 and Deferred Admissions Guide shares details on such programs as the Stanford GSB Deferred Enrollment Program, the Yale SOM Silver Scholars Program, and the Chicago Booth Scholars Program. The guide provides information and direction to candidates considering deferred admissions programs as their path to an MBA, including such core information as what attracts applicants to these programs, who is eligible to apply, and what past candidates have to say.
