The Dyson School admissions committee uses a holistic approach when reviewing applications. This means that all parts of your application are considered.
We look for students with high academic achievements in a rigorous curriculum. Our students have leadership and entrepreneurial qualities and take initiative.
We also look for students who share our ethos and vision: at Dyson, our business is a better world.
Because we want to make sure you are prepared to handle the academic workload in Dyson, academic success is an important criterion. Have you taken the most rigorous courses available to you and performed well?
Standardized tests are important, but they are only one piece of the puzzle. We want to see that you have demonstrated success in math, science, and analytical courses that will prepare you for the rigorous academic environment at the Dyson School.
Leadership, Initiative, and Entrepreneurship
Our students are leaders, team players, creative thinkers, and self-starters. We want to see that you are involved in your community, and engaging in challenging opportunities while also creating opportunity for others.
In your supplemental essay, you should write thoughtfully about how you will fit into the Dyson program–academically, socially, and professionally.
What have you experienced that makes you excited about studying business at Dyson? What special qualities will make you stand out and thrive? What it is about our program in applied economics and management that excites you? We want students who share our passion for business and applied economics and are excited to be a part of our community.
