Aerospace & Defense MBA

Application Process

All Aerospace & Defense MBA candidates to the Haslam College of Business must first apply through UT’s Graduate School. Candidates should review the graduate school’s admission procedures before applying.

A resume, references, transcripts and a $60 non-refundable application fee are also necessary to complete the application.


The priority application deadline for domestic students is October 30. Applicants are considered on a rolling admissions basis, and candidates should receive a decision within two weeks of submitting their complete application.

Applications submitted after that date will be reviewed and students admitted on the basis of available space. Space permitting, students can begin their applications as late as December 1 and still be admitted and positioned to succeed in the program. 

International students should apply by September 30 to ensure time to process visa materials. The program may be able to accommodate later international applications depending on the individual situation.

International or domestic students beginning their application after the priority application deadlines of September 30 / October 30 should contact the admissions coordinator at the earliest possible opportunity to expedite application.
