Consortium Application

Johnson is a member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, an alliance of leading American business schools and top corporations committed to enhancing diversity in business education and leadership by helping to reduce the serious underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in both member schools’ enrollments and the ranks of management. 

Consortium membership is limited to qualified U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents who can demonstrate a commitment to the Consortium’s mission and can best assist the Consortium in pursuing this mission. 

We strongly recommend that eligible candidates apply for admission to Johnson by using The Consortium application. Applicants who apply using the Consortium application undergo the same evaluation process as applicants who apply directly to Johnson.

Applying through the Consortium provides four key benefits:

Consortium Membership: Consortium members gain many benefits, including access to over 70 corporate partners, a mandatory Annual Orientation Program & Career Forum (OP) prior to beginning the MBA program, and access to nearly 6,000 Consortium alumni across member schools.

The Consortium Fellowship: Last year, Consortium member schools offered more than 330 fellowships covering tuition and mandatory fees for two years of full-time study. Applicants who are admitted through The Consortium process and become Consortium members are considered for these prestigious fellowships. Individual schools may also award other merit based scholarships and financial aid.

Common Application: One application allows you to apply to up to six Consortium schools. 

Tiered Application Fee: Using the Consortium common application significantly reduces your application fee costs versus applying to each Consortium member school individually.
