Hi there,

I was originally encouraged by some to apply to Full Time MBA programs during their "winter terms" but as I'm starting to research my target schools, most only seem to offer FT MBA programs during the Fall.

Am I missing something or was I given inaccurate information? Are there Winter sessions for FT programs?

Thanks for your help.

[Edit - forgot a couple!]

Hey Rich,

Great question! Not all do, but there are a handful that have spring starts. I've listed them below for your reference. If you're looking in the US top 20, your pickings are a little slim. If you don't mind me asking - is there a specific reason you're looking at spring starts? I only ask because your options are definitely constrained if that's a requirement.

If you have any other questions - don't hesitate to ask!

Hey Bhavik,

Thanks for your response. I had originally contemplated a Spring start because I recently resigned from my previous employer and wanted to get started on my GMAT/MBA process ASAP. However, with some more research, I noticed that a lot of the schools I was looking at only seemed to offer Fall starts - and your post obviously confirmed this.

Definitely good to know!

Thanks again,
Rich

Ah - I see. I can definitely understand why you'd want to get into a program and minimize your time on the sidelines then.

If you are interested in going for a fall start (as it seems you might be), definitely plan well for this intervening year. I don't know if you resigned because you had something lined up or if you're just testing the waters, but continuity of story will be really important so don't lose sight of that!

If you have any questions or want to talk through strategy, feel free to reach out!
