The Round 2 application deadline is January 6, 2020. Fuqua’s Class of 2020 numbers 440 students who averaged 5 years of work experience and 29 years of age at the time of matriculation.
The class’s 80% range of GMAT scores spanned from 650 to 750, while the 80% range for undergraduate GPAs was 3.1 to 3.88.
Fuqua does not state a minimum requirement for years of work experience.
However, it is important for candidates to be aware that they are being considered against other candidates with an average of 5 years of experience.
A total of 12% of the class hail from the Southwest region of the U.
S., and the Northeast contributes the highest percentage of students at 26%.Each class is typically more than two hours long, allowing ample time for a highly interactive case discussion, followed by a course lecture.Duke professors conduct leading research and are adept at integrating relevant and topical business issues into every class. Fuqua first introduced concentrations in 2008, but unlike majors at some other business schools, Fuqua students are not required to declare a concentration.Students frequently earn multiple concentrations, as there are many overlapping required classes among them.Finally, in Team Fuqua spirit, alumni tend to stay engaged long after graduation and their opinions are greatly valued by Admissions.So much so, that Fuqua encourages alumni and students who have met with prospective candidates to share direct feedback through an online submission if they feel a candidate is a good fit for the program.(When this happens, Fuqua will waive your application fee.) Let this be a further impetus to start networking with Fuqua alumni as your application process gets underway.Do so, and not only do you stand to gain a vocal champion about your fit for Fuqua, but greater confidence that Fuqua will be the right fit for you.These classes impart knowledge and experience by assisting real-world businesses in such areas as consulting, strategic planning, marketing strategy, and business plan development.Recently Fuqua introduced a global consulting practicum pairing teams of interested first year students with international clients to complete impactful semester-long projects.
