Applying for Admissions Ambassador:

  1. October 2nd Week Fri 5PM: ‚ÄčEmail Admissions & EWMBAA a few sentences explaining why you think you would make a great Admissions Ambassador.
  2. The Admissions team will schedule brief interviews and notify selected Ambassadors by end of October.

Applying to represent at Admissions Events Only:

  • Are you interested in participating in events for prospective students, but not necessarily able to be an Admissions Ambassador? Not to worry!
  • Fill out this brief survey to let us know if you would like to participate in Q&As, webinars, and other events during the school year! 

PLEASE NOTE: In 2016, we transitioned the EWMBA Admissions Ambassadors out of the EWMBA Association, and they will report to the Admissions Department. This transition will better serve the timing of Admissions events, which primarily occur between October-April. Previously, EWMBAA VPs of Admissions were not appointed until January or February, which did not coincide with the times that these Ambassadors would be most active.  Admissions Ambassadors will continue to work closely with the EWMBAA team. 

We are looking for students with great organizational and interpersonal skills that are passionate about promoting the Haas MBA experience and recruiting the best possible candidates for the EWMBA. We are looking to appoint about 2-3 students from each year.

From Amelia Rose Kusar, c/o 2018: "Having done this work for the past year, I can personally tell you that it was INCREDIBLY rewarding to  share my experiences with prospective students. It was also a great way to meet other EWMBAs from different years and cohorts who were just as enthusiastic about recruiting new Haasies!"
