How COVID-19 Is Impacting B-Schools
Here’s what you need to know:
The global pandemic has upended nearly every assumption admission officials have long held about the admit, reject and waitlist cycle. Forget about the notion of a traditional Round 2 (R2) or Round 3 (R3). As more schools extend their existing deadlines and add new admission rounds, what is quickly emerging is what you might call the COVID-19 Admissions Round.
What makes it dramatically different, a sort of in-between post-2019-2020 admissions cycle and pre-2020-2021 cycle, is that several more forward-looking schools are seeking to attract candidates who originally had no intention of applying this year or even next year. Suddenly, with the economy falling into what will be a deep recession. they find themselves either unemployed or with substantially different career prospects than assumed only a month or two ago.
The University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business Dean Scott Beardsley this week extended the school’s R3 deadline by more than three months to July 15th from April 6th with the explicit reason to enlarge this year’s MBA applicant pool. “We have just come off one of the most robust job markets of the post-World War II era and now there is a greater degree of uncertainty for some people,” he says. “Maybe now is a good time to go back to school. I think an MBA will be a very strong option for many people who are unsure of what will happen in the next few years. For some people, the opportunity costs of attending school have just dropped. So we want to be able to be here for some of those outstanding people.”
